Buka, September 26, 2016 – Over 30 parliamentarians from the Bougainville House of Representatives (BHOR) received certificates last week after completing a week long computer training in Buka Town. The training was the first of a series of planned Information, Communications Technology (ICT) training to upscale the use of ICT among Parliamentarians in the Autonomous Region of Bougainville.

According to UNDP Peacebuilding Fund Programme Coordinator based in the autonomous region, Mr. Lawrence Bassie, the training was part of UNDP’s overall efforts to strengthen the work of the Autonomous Bougainville Government in general and more specifically to support the House of Representatives to be more effective and accountable to their electorates.
