On 16 November, the Royal Institute of Management (RIM) organized a capacity building workshop in Thimphu, Bhutan utilizing two modules from APCICT's flagship programme the "Academy of ICT Essentials for Government Leaders" (Academy).  Sixteen participants from government and the private sector received training from national resource persons on Academy modules 5 – Internet Governance, and 6 – Information Security and Privacy.
