Discussion about RAMSI's operation to start in Honiara

The Enhanced Consultative Mechanism meeting E-C-M between the Solomon Island Government, the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands RAMSI and the Pacific Islands Forum will again convene in Honiara tomorrow (today).

This is to be followed by the Forum Ministerial Standing Committee F-M-S-C Meeting, also in Honiara on Thursday.

The meetings are to discuss issues concerning the operations of RAMSI and indicate mechanisms of strengthening relationships between the three parties.

This is the second meeting between the three partners in the Mission this year and since Pacific Islands Forum Leaders endorsed the recommendations of the RAMSI Review Forum Taskforce Report during the Leaders’ meeting in Tonga last October.

Senior officials representing the Solomon Islands Government, RAMSI and four other Forum members will attend the E-C-M Meeting tomorrow, to be followed by a meeting of the Forum Ministerial Standing Committee Thursday.

It is expected that the meetings will receive updates on the operations of RAMSI, updates on implementation of the Pacific Islands Forum RAMSI Review Report and the reporting process for RAMSI Reports to the Forum Leaders.

Furthermore, it is expected that the meetings will discuss the SIG/RAMSI Partnership Framework and work out procedures for collective implementation of this Framework.
