Next JSB Meeting to be held in Buka


Prime Minister Hon James Marape and President of The Autonomous Bougainville Government (ABG) Hon Ishmael Toroama have agreed to meet for the Joint Supervisory Body meeting in Buka next month.

The announcement follows a successful meeting between the leaders in Port Moresby over the weekend.

Key issues that will be brought forth to this JSB meeting include post-referendum matters which covers the progress of establishing the Permanent Secretariat to support the Joint Government Consultations, the appointment of a moderator and the Ratification agenda among others.

Other recommendations that were agreed to in the last Joint Technical Team (JTT) meeting in November last year include the Bougainville Economic and Investment Summit, BCL shares, Fisheries, Taxation and National Government SME funding.

At the last JTT meeting, a Joint Communique was also tabled by the ABG Team which intended to create mutual understanding and agreement of the implementation of the referendum results.

This week the leaders jointly signed the Joint Communique between the two governments as a solid sign of their commitment to the joint consultations on the outcome of the referendum.
