WESTERN Provincial government recently has appointed 15 Ministerial Advisory Board Committee in the Western Province.
Premier Hon David Gina told Island Sun Gizo yesterday that those are important appointments as these bodies address sector-wide policy issue that requires the experiences and in-depth understanding that the appointees possess.
“In some cases old members have been retained whilst in others new members have appointed.”
“Some of these Boards and Committees become defunct over the past five years resulting in virtually nit outcomes,’ he added.
“On the other hand these organs have been very active and turning out quality outcomes,” said Gina.
He said the mandates accorded to those Boards are crucial to help socio-economic needs of the province.
Gina said the government will be closely monitoring and reviewing their performance of the outcomes periodically.
He said the Advisory Boards and Committees include, Education Advisory Board, Provincial Accounts Committee, Assembly Advisory Committee, State Chamber Committee, Western Province Sports Council, Works Advisory Board, Planning and Economic Development Advisory Board, Health and RWASH, Provincial Health Executive Committee, Tourism Advisory Committee, Environment Advisory Board and Commerce and Investment.
