    Background: Delegates attending a two-month seminar on economic planning at University College in Nairobi, were welcomed on Tuesday (7 July) at a reception at the University. The reception was given by Dr. Karanja, the new Principal of the College.

    The seminar is being attended by 24 government officials from eleven African countries, including Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Sudan, Tanzania, Somalia, the United Arab Republic and Uganda.

    The course is sponsored by the World Bank, the United Nations and the University of Nairobi. The directors of the course are Mr. Morris Miller, Mr P. Hopcraft and Mr G. Abangwu. Lectures will include experts from the government, the university and various international agencies.

    The course is designed to familiarise government officials with analysis projects and to teach them if such projects are to be financed from domestic or external sources.

    For more than 15 years, the World Bank has been involved in training government officials to strengthen their planning capability.

    Tuesday's reception at the University was attended by a number of Ambassadors and High Commissioners, as well as many Kenya Government officials. Dr. Porter, ,who was also at the reception, is a former University College Principal.
