PIDF Senior Officials Committee Meet
PIDF held its 2018 Senior Officials Committee (SOC) meeting on April 27 at the University of the South Pacific (USP), ICT Centre. The meeting was well attended by PIDF member representatives who included country reps as well as representation from the civil society and the private sector. The SOC meeting paves the way forward as a preparatory platform for the scheduled 2018 PIDF Governance meetings which includes the Member’s Representative Council (MRC) meetings, the PIDF Leader’s Summit and the PIDF Conference.
PIDF Secretary General presented the PIDF Annual Report for 2015/2016, the financial report for the same period and the Secretary General’s report for the period 2016/2017. Various consultations and major activity reports were also presented and discussed during the SOC meeting.
The PIDF secretariat also received feedback from its members represented at the SOC on various issues that were raised during the discussions. The secretariat has taken all concerns and suggestions on board which will be reflected in the meeting papers at the PIDF Governance meetings set to be held in Honiara, Solomon Islands in July 2018.
