Six Pacific Women attended Leadership training at Havard University
Solomon Islands Jane Waetara, the Permanent Secretary in the department of National Planning and Aid Coordination was among the women from Fiji, Cook Islands, Samoa, the Federate States of Micronesia and Papua New Guinea.
In a statement, Mrs Waetara says the two week training programme ended last Friday.
She says this rare training opportunity was an initiative supported by NZAID’s Pacific Leadership Development Programme in collaboration with the Council of World Women Leaders to support Emerging Pacific Women Leaders.
Mrs Waetara says the New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark is a member of the Council of World Women Leaders and her support to this programme is highly appreciated.
She says the New Zealand government must be commended for its continuous support to the region and in particular, this initiative which supports emerging Pacific Women Leaders.
