A half-day workshop on the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI) Drawdown 2017 concludes in Honiara today.
Organised by the RAMSI Special Coordinator’s Office, its main objective is to inform the media fraternity on issues leading up to the RAMSI Drawdown in June 2017 and the arrangements for post-RAMSI.
Presentations came from representatives of the Solomon Islands Government (SIG), the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) and RAMSI.
The workshop is part of the Communication Strategy on the RAMSI Drawdown 2017.
RAMSI’s Public Affairs has decided to start with the media because it believes media is a vital partner in the community outreach on the Drawdown.
Though sensitive as it may seem for Solomon Islanders, RAMSI believes a good understanding of the issue by the media will help the Government, the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force and the Mission to get the right message across.
RAMSI leaves on 30th June next year.
