More than 1200 Papua New Guineans from the public and private sectors are making differences in their work places through the Pacific Leadership and Governance Precinct.
This was highlighted at the precinct’s executive advisory board meeting in Port Moresby yesterday.
Department of Personnel Management Secretary John Kali said the precinct supported PNG’s strong public sector reform agenda.
“The public service is undergoing a process of modernisation that will ensure it is equipped to meet the challenges that PNG faces as it looks to the future.
“The precinct is underpinned by the ethics and values-based Executive Leadership and Management Capability Framework and the Gender Equity and Social Inclusion Policy. These are key policies that will drive us towards PNG Vision 2050,” Kali said.
Secretary for Higher Education, Research Science and Technology, Prof David Kavanamur and Australian High Commissioner Bruce Davis were also present.
Davis said the precinct demonstrated the modern partnership between PNG and Australia.
“This joint initiative will continue to develop capable and ethical public sector leaders, who are aware of their important role in the development of PNG and the region.”
A strong public service is vital for sustained economic growth and improved service delivery,” Davis said.
The Precinct is a partnership between PNG and Australia to support efforts to develop ethical leaders and to build the capacity of the PNG public and private sectors.
It includes Australian-certified diploma level training through the PNG Institute of Public Administration, economics at University of PNG’s School of Business and Public Policy, and short courses on topics such as extractive industries, leadership and innovation in agriculture, and women on boards.
The training offered through the Precinct is designed to suit the needs of existing and emerging leaders in the workforce.
