On 6 September 2019, ITC organized a workshop on Business Advocacy with Mandalay Regional Chambers of Commerce and Industries (MRCCI). 48 participants from MRCCI, regional associations and other private sector stakeholders based in Mandalay and the surrounding region benefited from extensive capacity building to (1) Obtain a good understanding of public policy and the role of advocacy and dialogue in the policy making process, (2) Learn techniques on how to engage with policy makers, and (3) Develop action plans for the way forward for their organisation. There was very positive feedback with request for more such workshops and engagement. The interactive nature of the workshop was especially appreciated by the audience.
