IT is a necessity to conduct local level government management team meetings to re-examine the effectiveness of government policies and programmes, an official says.
Morobe acting provincial administrator Sheila Harou was addressing a joint meeting of the provincial management team and the Huon Gulf district management team.
She said council managers should organise these meetings and invite teachers, community health workers, land mediators, peace and village court officers and church leaders.
“It educates them to realign their roles and responsibilities in ward plans and educate rural people on the policies government anticipates in delivering socio-economy services,” Harou said.
“At the end of the tunnel, we realise that everybody implementing the policies, programmes and obligations are synchronised from the provincial to district and local level governments working together.”
The management team began its visit to the nine districts in Lae followed by Huon Gulf, Nawaeb and Markham today.
They will be in Bulolo on Monday followed by Menyamya, Finschhafen, Tewae-Siassi and Kabwum.
Harou said it was to take the team to the districts to discuss government policies.
“We cannot talk disconnected and work in isolation to serve the same people,” she said.
“We must remain connected.
“We must identify our missing links and realign the policies and programmes by speaking the same language and implementing activities using same approach to deliver service to our people.”
