Australia continues to expand its efforts to build good governance in Papua New Guinea with a new training initiative for public servants. It adds to existing programs run by the Ombudsman and the Public Service Commission.
The initial stage of an Australian governance program, involving 27 public servants, has been completed in Papua New Guinea.
The program is part of the expanding Pacific Leadership and Governance project created to support public sector education and training following an agreement signed by Foreign Minister Julie Bishop and the PNG government in December, reports The Australian. The memorandum will see the establishment of a Pacific Leadership and Governance Precinct in Waigani, a suburb of Port Moresby.
The first step in the creation of the precinct is an executive course, run by the universities of Queensland and PNG, completed by the 27 senior bureaucrats.
A range of Australian and PNG organisations are involved in the project, including the Australian Institute of Company Directors, the Australia and New Zealand School of Government, the Australian Public Service Commission, the Canberra Institute of Technology Solutions and the Australian National University.
