During the International Symposium on Public Personnel Management in Beijing from 25 – 28 October a proposal was made to set up this network
Following a presentation of the Africa Public Sector Human Resource Managers’ Network (APS-HRMnet), which was established in February 2009 with the support of DESA, to the participants at the International Symposium, a proposal to establish a human resource managers’ network in Asia, similar to the one already implemented in Africa, was made.
This proposal was accepted by the participants with enthusiasm and appreciation and was discussed along with a presentation made by a participant from Sri Lanka. An agreement was reached to establish a small working group that would meet virtually and continue to work on the proposal.
It was also agreed that the working group will inform the Symposium participants on progress made regarding the establishment of the Human Resource Managers’ Network in Asia and on the way forward.
