THE Office of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, Ministry of Finance and Treasury and the Ministry of Commerce, Labour and Immigration welcomed the month of July with a corporate flag- hoisting ceremony yesterday.
Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare led the brief monthly ceremony, a statement from his office said.
The ceremony involved singing of the National Anthem and hoisting of the national flag at the OPMC compound.
In his Independence Day Message soon after his election as Prime Minister in 2019, PM Sogavare emphasised on ‘National Unity’.
He underpinned that the National Constitution, National Flag and National Anthem are embodiment of our national unity.
“From this moment forward, my office will commence the practice to raise our National Flag and sing our National Anthem on the first working day of every month.
“I hope every ministry, schools and provincial government follow suit.”
The Office of the Prime Minister and Cabinet under the leadership of Prime Minister Sogavare have been observing the monthly flag-hoisting ceremony since mid-2019.
