  On this closing ceremony, Mr.
Mangara expresed and had a great
appreciation and many thanks
to the opportunity for working
together for the last it years and
this year with the Ministry of
State Secretary of the Republic of
Indonesia, JICA for their continu-
ing assistance, funding and ac-
tively supporting from design and
implementing the 9th TCTP.
  Beside that, CESS as organizer
encouraged all participants in
your own respective country for
the continuing working in the
poverty reduction programme. It
may a need the participant to take
initiative for maintaining the rela-
tionship in the post training. In
the case as I see it, there is a need
to develope further international
network on poverty reduction.
