Collaborative approach basis of peace agreement: Nobetau


A collaborative approach to give effect to the key objectives of the Bougainville peace agreement will be the cornerstone of the autonomous region’s new chief secretary, Joseph Nobetau’s running of the public service.
Nobetau said this in Bougainville yesterday during his swearing-in to formally assume duties as chief secretary.
“I recognise that this will be no easy task and, given the ongoing fiscal and capacity constraints, acknowledge that much work needs to be done,” Nobetau said.
“As chief secretary, my sole priority is to build the capacity of the public service so that we can deliver on the expectations of the Government and the people.”
Over the coming weeks, the new chief secretary will be meeting with departmental heads to discuss some of the key challenges and issues facing the Autonomous Bougainville Government.
In line with Autonomous Bougainville Government president Dr John Momis’ recent ministerial statement to parliament, Nobetau’s key discussions with the departmental heads will be on how to enhance Bougainville’s current fiscal position.
