The Speaker of Parliament, Mr. Ajilon Nasiu, the Clerk Mr. Clezy Rore and the Deputy Clerk Mr. David Kusilifu recently attended the 48th Presiding Officers and Clerks Conference (POCC) in Sydney, Australia. The conference was hosted by the Parliament of New South Wales from Monday 3 to Friday 7 July 2017.

The conference provided a forum for the Presiding Officers and Clerks to discuss roles of the Presiding Officer and the Clerk in the Parliamentary institution. Over 80 delegates from 20 Australian and Pacific Nation Parliaments participated in a program of seminars and activities designed to share valuable ideas and experiences of parliamentary practice and procedure.

The conference also marked the 10th anniversary of the establishment of Parliamentary Twinning. Australian and Pacific parliaments that belong to the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) participate in a twinning program that provides the opportunity to enhance relations, exchange information and learn from each other. The concept of twinning is similar to the ‘sister city’ relationships that exist between cities of different countries.

The Solomon Islands National Parliament is twinned with the New South Wales Parliament and the Bougainville House of Representatives. Through the Twinning Program the National Parliament has been able to build on and supplement areas within Parliament where capacity and knowledge required strengthening.

The New Zealand Parliament will host the next POC conference in 2018. The National Parliament wishes to thank the Solomon Islands Government and the Australian High Commission for enabling the National Parliament to attend.
