PARLIAMENT FEMALE STAFF ON AUSTRALIA CULTURAL ATTACHMENT TRIP

FRIDAY 26TH MAY 2017

A total of 22 Female Officers and a senior male staff of the National Parliament Office, have left on Tuesday 23rd May for an education and cultural attachment with the Legislative Assembly of the New South Wales Parliament, Australia

Chairperson of the e-Experience Initiative Mrs. Jasmine Waleafea says the aim of the visit is to enable staff members of the National Parliament Office to experience an informal but educational exposure in the pursuit to bolster aptitude in their work places.
Both the Autonomous Bougainville House of Representative and the National Parliament of Solomon Islands have been benefiting from the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association Partnership, Twinning Arrangements with the New South Wales Parliament since 2007.

This gesture of returning a visit is minimal but yet a reciprocating indicator of the independency and the maturity that Parliament has become, given the technical support gained over the years. The group is anticipating to have session with the various departments who provided parliamentary services at the Legislative Assembly, similarly to the National Parliament Office.

In a statement to commission the team, the Clerk to the National Parliament, Mr. Clezy Rore stated that he and his counterpart, the New South Wales Parliament Clerk, Mr. David Blunt were happy to have supported this initiative. Mr. Rore further congratulated his female Officers for making it possible by raising and also securing funds for the trip.

The group’s Chairperson Mrs. Jasmine Waleafea, assures the Admin that the team will certainly benefited as envisaged and will ensure that they take responsibility as envoys for the National Parliament Office and Solomon Islands as a whole.
The “e”- experiences constitute the values of providing an experience that is educational, provides from exposure, empowerment and an example of women displaying leadership gaits.

Mrs. Waleafea further added that the e-experience was truly an opportunity for them as women to attest to leadership capacity amongst themselves in their work place.
“It is absolutely an avenue to empower ourselves by the challenges we faced when taking up leadership roles in this initiative” Mrs. Waleafea says.

The Team would like to convey their sincere appreciations to Hon. John Moffat Fugui, MP for Central Honiara, the Department of Foreign Affairs, Australia and the Australian High Commission Office in Solomon Islands for funding part of their travelling expenses; the National Parliament Office, the Ministry of Infrastructure Development and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and External Trades for their support besides individual and Members of Parliament who have responded to their appeal in particular; the MP for Temotu Vatud, MP for Temotu Nende, MP for North West Choiseul, MP for West Honiara, MP for East Choiseul, MP for Shortlands, MP for East Guadalcanal, MP for East Are’are, MP for Savo/Russell and MP for Fataleka and Dr. John Patterson (Former UNDP Parliamentary Strengthening Project Manager).
