Dear ITS customers, friends and partners, dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
Another year has come to its end. We hope that you all had a good 2016 and that this newsletter finds you and your families in good health.
It has been quite some time since the last newsletter so there is a lot to report from ITS.
2016 kicked off with a visit of a Delegation from Enugu State, Nigeria. Her Excellency Mrs. Fidelia Njeze, Chairman, Governing Council Enugu State College of Education (Technical) together with the Consultant to Her Excellency, Professor Placid Njoku travelled to Munich to receive an insight to the services of ITS and experience the special German Dual Training System at first hand.
Following this visit, ITS was invited to an on-site inspection of various different training facilities in Enugu State, led by our Managing Director Joachim Kühnrich in February. In October, the official Delegation of His Excellency the Governor of Enugu State, represented by Honourable Commissioner for Education Enugu State Prof. Uchechi Ezeh and Her Excellency Mrs. Fidelia Njeze, paid us a visit in Germany. In result we are looking forward to conducting a Training Needs Analysis in January in Enugu State as the first step in the project of modernizing existing training facilities in the State. Further information can be found in the link below.
Furthermore, in this Newsletter you can see what else has been going on within in 2016. We will give you an insight into recent events, travels, milestones, and introduce you to members of the ITS community. In this issue we are saying goodbye to our dear Mr. Dieter Pfundstein, who has been a trusted cornerstone of our team from the very beginning of ITS and has retired in October 2016. We would herewith like to thank Mr. Pfundstein for his enduring motivation throughout the years, his love for Africa and its different cultures, his strong customer orientation, and his support in all areas of our company. Thank you!
We would also like to take the opportunity to thank all of our customers for their trust and great cooperation, our partners and suppliers for the reliable team work and support and our employees for their commitment and engagement in our different projects all around Africa.
In addition to that we would like to specifically thank the German Embassy in Nigeria as well as the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs for their overwhelming support in 2016.
