A capacity training workshop for the National Sustainable Development Board began this morning in preparation for the 2019 Pacific Islands Development Forum Conference and Governance later this year.

The workshop was opened by the Chief Secretary and Secretary to Cabinet – Edgar Cocker who said the NSDB is perhaps the most challenging, unique and bravest step taken by leaders to coordinate their country position in a more coherent and consistent manner. Tonga has been a member of the PIDF since 2013, and established the Tonga NSDB in 2017. At the conclusion of the workshop, the members will elect nominated representatives from Government, Civil Society Organisations, and the Private Sector to represent Tonga at the at the biennial PIDF Conference in July.

Attending this training are the members of the NSDB – representatives from government ministries, Civil Society Organisations, and the Private Sector.
