Provincial Premiers around the country have today ended their first Pre-Premiers Conference workshop in Honiara.
Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Provincial Government and Institutional Strengthening Stanley Pirione told SIBC News the workshop has enabled the Premiers to discuss issues that they want included in the 8th Premier’s Conference in October.
“Only a few issues were brought to the Premiers’ attention, some of which includes the themes of topics which the premiers would like to discuss during the premier’s conference proper which hopefully will take place on the 5th to 9th of October.”
He adds, the workshop has also given the chance for the hosts of the upcoming Premier’s Conference to update the Premiers about their preparations.
“Today the Ministry along with the Honiara City Council and Guadalcanal Province would also like to update the Premiers on their status especially in preparing for the upcoming Premier’s Conference.”
A second workshop will be held next month before the actual conference in October.
