Unique challenges for B’ville

The Bougainville Public Service has its own unique set of challenges.

Chief Secretary of the Autonomous Bougainville Government, Shadrach Himata, outlined that the three main areas are; deliver goods and services to our people, deliver a country for our people and build an economy for Bougainville.

“These three are equally our priorities at the same time,” stated Chief Secretary Himata.

“I challenge all public servants that these efforts will require sacrifices to be made, and our patriotic spirit to help manage this task before us.

“This also calls for the public service to step up and to start burning the midnight oil.

“We are expected to drive the work plans and programs with dedication and commitment and on time.

“It also means that we need to start understanding what the cost of delivering goods and services in an independent state would look like. And to do that, we need to have the revenue sources to support the cost of an independent state.

“It calls for us to focus on the basics and the fundamental things in our lives and at the workplace.

“Today and going forward, we must be motivated by the fact that we are going to deliver a nation for our people.

“From the northern tip of Buka to the most southern tip of Buin to our Atolls, it is time for us all to work together, support the government and ensure we reach our final destination together as a unified and independent Bougainville.”
