THE East New Britain provincial administration will establish a moni­toring data system to track implementation of the province’s newly launched strategic deve­lopment plan and its corporate plan.
Administrator Akuila Tubal highlighted this last Friday at the Kokopo Secondary School hall during the launching of the 10-year provincial strategic development plan and the provincial corporate plan.
He said the development plan would require K2.5 billion and expected to increase the revenue base by 2021 to K1.6 billion per year.
He said that could be achieved through a proper and effective monitoring framework, including a data system.
Tubal said the administration would be undertaking further consultations as part of the roll-out of the development plan.
He said the roll-out was critical to the effective implementation of the plan.
“All divisional heads, district administrators and LLG managers are required to strategically manage their staff in order that the vision, mission and strategies are adequately responded to by way of
sector planning and annual budgeting,” he said.
“The plans will not only be implemented by the provincial administration only but by
all stakeholders, including the private sector under the public-private partnership policy framework.”
He said the administration recognised the critical role of the private sector in this process
and would be engaging with them through the chamber of commerce.
Tubal expressed confidence in the provincial government that it would support the administration to deliver these plans, including development partners both within and outside of ENB with national agencies.
Department of Provincial Local Level Government Affairs director capacity building, Dickson Gwina, said the launch of plans was yet another milestone for ENB.
He said the department would support East New Britain’s drive to improve service for the people of ENB.
