The Ministry of National Unity Reconciliation and Peace yesterday has launched its Human Resource Development Document which is aimed building the capacity of its human resources.
The launching was witnessed by the Minister for National Unity Peace and Reconciliation, Hon. Hypolite Tarumae, Permanent Secretary Lennis Rukale and Permanent Secretary of Public Services Ishmael Avui in Honiara.
Mr Rukale said the document paves the way for the Ministry’s determination to pursue its intention for manpower capacity building in a more formal and coordinated manner.
The nature of the Ministry’s work is quite technical and most officers in the past until recently were on fixed term appointments, which the Ministry of Public Service has now given permanent appointments.
“I believe with this document the ministry is determined to pursue its intention for the manpower capacity building in a more formal and coordinated manner,” Mr Rukale said.
The document will also ensure capacity building in the ministry’s current and future training needs, which will greatly enhance the work of peace and state building in Solomon Islands.
He added that human resource development for the Ministry is reflected well in the 2013 budget and work programme.
Mr Rukale explained that the direction his ministry is currently shifting into especially in the field of peace and state building requires deeper understanding in various disciplines in order to deal with scenarios at hand.
“This is where the need to train and acquire more skills is very crucial,” he said.
The document is a first of its kind for the ministry. Source PMO
