News and Information



The National Parliament of Solomon Islands is hosting the 3rd Meeting of the Pacific Regional Network of Public Accounts Committees (PaNPAC) from the 7th to 9th November 2016.

This meeting intends to build on the initial PaNPAC meetings in New Zealand and Fiji in order to strengthen the learning partnership of PACs in the region.

It expects to bring together a total of seventeen PAC Chairpersons and Members from the Pacific Region.

The PaNPAC Regional Network Meeting aims to:

(i) Identify where in the region we are seeing the application of good practices
(ii) Explore how we can learn from each other’s successes and failures; and
(iii) Build consensus as to what progress looks like – for individual jurisdictions and the region as a whole

In addition, members will take the opportunity of being in the Solomon Islands to hear from different institutions that support PAC, such as the Auditor General,

Contractor General and representatives from the media and/or a civil society organization.

The outcome of the meeting should guide participants and facilitators to see where these partnerships can be strengthened, what are the opportunities, what gets in the way, what opportunities are there to engage with other regional networks and community of practice, such as the Pacific Association of Supreme Audit Institutions (PASAI).

PaNPAC was inaugurated in 2015, as a peer platform for networking amongst Parliamentary Finance Committees of the region and this is its 3rd meeting.

It held its first meeting in 2014 in Samoa and the second one in New Zealand.

In July 2016, Hon. Jeremiah Manele, the Leader of the Official Opposition and a member of the Public Accounts Committee formed part of the PaNPAC Core Group who endorsed Solomon Islands as the host for this years’ Meeting.

Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, Hon. Rick Houenipwela says that hosting this important regional meeting is a privilege and an opportunity for his Committee Members to be part of the sessions and interact with their counterparts.

In the region, Solomon Islands Parliament is often referred to as leading model of an effective scrutiny and oversight, given its committee system and efforts.

The meeting is supported by the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA), the United Nations Development Program and the World Bank Group.
