THE PNG Trade Union Congress is satisfied with individual participation in shared governance under the AusAID’s democratic governance.
TUC president John Paska said individuals were taking ownership of shared governance from the bottom to the top.
“We have every reason to be proud of the efforts of AusAID’s democratic governance transition phase (DGTP) programme that is making it possible for individuals to be part of shared governance and feel responsible of their roles,” he said at the 2010 DGTP three-day workshop in Goroka this week.
He said the value of input from participants aimed at moving in a positive direction to the next stage.
Mr Paska said contents of the activities and relevance complemented Government efforts that impacted good and shared governance.
DGTP team leader Dr Naihuwo Ahai said the programme gave voice to everyone to contribute and influence decisions affecting them and the people.
He said the workshop aimed at assessing performances of various partners involved in DGTP to identify the strengths, processes, managements and assess performance for the next phase.
“These promoted the public-private partnership (PPP) approach to collaboratively pursue the achievement of the development agenda,” he said.
