Update: 12:04PM CHAIRS of parliamentary committees from Fiji, Trinidad and Tobago, as well as a senior committee clerk of the New Zealand Parliament were engaged in a two-day capacity and knowledge building workshop for chairpersons and deputies of the 17 permanent committees of the Papua New Guinea (PNG) Parliament.

The workshop according to a statement issued by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) was to enhance the work of officers of the PNG parliament.

Deputy Speaker for the National Parliament of Papua New Guinea, Jeffery Komal in opening the workshop highlighted the value and the relevance of the training as it helps to equip the Parliament Committee Chairpersons and their deputies in carrying out their role.

He said they were grateful to their colleagues and resource persons from the Parliaments of Fiji, Trinidad and Tobago and New Zealand as well as development partners, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Government of New Zealand for the assistance rendered.

The training for Committee Chairs and Deputy Chairs which concluded yesterday is part of a programme of support by the Pacific Parliamentary Effectiveness Initiative (PPEI) implemented by the UNDP Pacific Office in Fiji with funding support from the Government of New Zealand's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT).
