Solomon Islands' Permanent Secretaries told to work harder

Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare has reminded permanent secretaries that ‘at the end of 4 years, the government need to show people what they've done’.

His result-oriented message was delivered when he reminded the permanent secretaries about the government’s new line of thinking, as outlined in its Policy Framework Document.

He said the political unit in the Prime Minister’s Office will be making regular checks on permanent secretaries to ensure a timely implementation of government policies.

He also pointed out the need for a close working partnership between his political unit and permanent and provincial secretaries.

Mr Sogavare also emphasized the government’s bottom-up approach development, saying that if the people want infrastructure, then government should build them.

The main thrust of the Prime Minister’s message is the translation of the Policy Framework Document into real tangible outcomes of which permanent secretaries play a vital role.

Meanwhile, the Government Communications Unit confirms that there’s been a minor reshuffle of permanent secretaries.

Mr Shadrack Fanega who was Permanent Secretary in the Department of Finance and Treasury has been moved to National Planning and Aid Coordination, and was replaced by Luma Darcy who used to be Under-Secretary, Department of Finance and Treasury.
