Our Expertise

With almost five decades of experience in parliamentary strengthening and capacity building, the Parliamentary Centre has developed a wide-ranging expertise in helping legislatures around the world serve their people better.

Our Achievements

“I have understood the budget process very well and the pro-poor budgeting which I did not know has a great impact on me. The ICT aspect was very interesting and practical. The mail merging that I learnt is going to help me a lot in my work schedule. The group work was very effective and we shared a lot of ideas. I have gained more knowledge in preparing my reports on the annual budget estimates. Moreover, I have made an international network of friends for other parliaments. ”
