SPEAKER Dr Jiko Luveni says the parliamentary secretariat in the region needs more training in the areas of administrative skills, corporate governance, leadership, human resources and financial management.

Dr Luveni made the comment during the corporate management for regional parliaments training organised by the United Nations Development Program and the Fijian Parliament in Suva.

She said the training would help participants understand better about corporate management, keeping them abreast with modernisation.

“It further strengthens our capacity to deliver services with confidence.

We need to always strive for and achieve excellence in our performance.

“It also enables Parliament staff to be responsive to the changing work environment and the peculiar hardships created by MPs in their quest for recognition that could mould parliamentary services to some extent.”
