Professor Clement Imbert, MIC chairman welcomes the audience at the launch of the customised steelpan manufacturing programme for NGC.

THE MIC Institute of Technology (MIC-IT) has launched a customised steelpan manufacturing programme at its head office in Macoya. This customized programme is the result of a Memorandum of Agreement signed in July, between MIC-IT and the National Gas Company (NGC) to benefit sponsored steel band members.

It is intended to arm graduates with knowledge and practical skills for pan construction, pan tuning and fabrication of the necessary pan tools and accessories.

At the launch, NGC president Mark Loquan indicated that NGC sponsoring the programme was not just another corporate social responsibility activity. He said that looking through a sustainability lens, NGC’s aim is to ensure a global competitive advantage and to transform it into a sustainable industry.
