As Chief of Party for the Afghanistan Assistance for Anti-corruption Authority, he talks about the project and great recognition USAID and MSI received on International Anti-corruption Day in December.

The ceremony inaugurated a new training center that MSI’s USAID-funded Afghanistan Foreign Affairs Institutional Reform (FAIR) built for the Institute of Diplomacy.

The training center has wireless internet and contains three classrooms, a study center and administrative section, building the capacity of MoFA employees.

The Pajhwok Report news agency reported on the event and talked with the director of Institute of Diplomacy:

“We are genuinely grateful for this assistance from the people of the United States to Afghanistan,” said Director of Institute of Diplomacy Hazrat Wahriz. “This new center will allow us to conduct more standardised training for our staff, including English language education.”
