The Pacific Institute of Leadership and Governance has played an important role in the history of leadership development in Papua New Guinea and the Precinct is supporting this tradition to be continued.
PILAG is committed to the development of public service leaders by providing vocational training that meets the needs of government agencies. A strong partnership with the Australian Public Service Commission has assisted with training, including the improvement of internal capacity to design and deliver courses.
The Precinct supports PILAG’s continued revitalisation led by its management team. Regional training delivery is being strengthened, including vocational education delivered directly to subnational areas. This supports the Government of Papua New Guinea’s decentralisation priority through the development of leaders who can drive improved service delivery and economic development at the provincial and district levels.
