RAMSI clarifies the purpose and intention of its community outreach programme to provinces
The Spokesperson however says RAMSI would be pleased to have government take part in its provincial visits, as had occurred in past visits.
The person says it is not new that RAMSI is making these visits, which in the past had included Solomon Islands government officials.
The RAMSI spokesperson says the mission has been visiting provinces since its arrival.
The person says when the Pacific Islands Forum endorsed the mission in 2003, RAMSI was given the task to ensure it conducts consultations with Solomon Islanders, most of whom live in the provinces.
The person says the Community Outreach Program is designed to raise awareness about the work of RAMSI, and it gives the mission an opportunity to listen to the concerns of the people.
