The National Government is working towards establishing a Governors Committee that will have a collective voice to address issues faced in provinces.

Prime Minister James Marape announced this yesterday, when opening the Governors Conference in Port Moresby.

The Committee will be led by Morobe Governor Luther Wenge and his deputy will be East New Britain Governor Michael Marum.

Many challenges faced in the provinces are common, hence this Committee will work towards a collective voice and experience sharing to address development issues in respective provinces.

The Committee of Governors will work together to deliver outcomes the country expects.
The Prime Minister said the State will ensure calls made by Governors for reforms are honoured within the context of ensuring they are delivering to the expectations of the people and the country.

He challenged Governors to start working with less talking.

Prime Minister Marape also called on the Secretary for the Department of Personnel Management Taies Sansan to start running more training's for Provincial Administrators to make them more aware of what needs to be done.

The theme for this year's Governors Conference is "Continuing dialogue to empower provinces for improved service delivery, economic growth and self-reliance.”

The Conference continues today.
