"The Foundation Course in Contract Administration", the first in person CPD after the Covid 19 pandemic organised by SLQS - UAE was a great success with over 51 participants. This was held on 21st & 28th of January 2023 at Millenium Hotel, Al Barsha, Dubai, UAE. The feedback received from the participants were unprecedented and encourages the SLQS -UAE committee to conduct more events of this nature in the future. We thank Prof. Indrawansa Samaratunga for devoting his time and making this event a great success. We all are grateful to him for the unique knowledge disseminated during the program
