Bougainville & NSW sign twinning agreement


THE SPEAKERS of the Autonomous Bougainville Government and the New South Wales Parliament [pictured] have signed a Parliamentary Partnership Agreement.

The agreement was signed by Richard Torbay and Andrew Miriki, the respective Speakers of their Parliaments.

It aims to promote collaboration, cooperation and understanding between the Bougainville House of Representatives and the NSW Parliament for their mutual benefit.

Under the terms of this agreement, the parliaments have agreed to work towards developing friendly relations through exchanging information, training in parliamentary practice, and exchange visits for parliamentarians and parliamentary staff.

Colin - Maybe you have it all wrong. Bougainville obviously is the role model for NSW to aspire to.

All I can say is "God help Bougainville". There could, I am sure, be no worse teacher in parliamentary decency and procedures than NSW.

Still it is a good chance for holidays: for one, five star accommodation; the other, a tropical island adventure!
