Message from Kalon:
The WFIS is a very important project which strongly inclines to the 5-50 vision of the 15th Kashag. With the help of this technical system, we will be able to maintain an updated statistic of exile Tibetan demography and Workforce data for an effective and efficient administration of the Tibetan community in India, Nepal and Bhutan.
The information collected from the WFIS is aimed to form baseline for the future policy making by assessing the core need of the community. Thus we have a strong believe that the Workforce Information System will in time prove to be the most reliable indicator for all future developments in the exile Tibetan community.
