University of Tasmania grants support to Members of Parliament and OCLA

The University of Tasmania with its continuous support through education to empower staff members of the Office and Members of Parliament had opened another window of opportunity to further enhance OCLA support services and capacity of  Members of Parliament.

Professor Richard Herr with the assistance of Dr. Megan Alessandrini and Ms. Kaye McPherson from the Parliament of Tasmania facilitated the one day Public Administration Seminar for Members of Parliament as well as seminars for the staff. The seminar themed “Policymaking and the role of Parliament in the Policy Cycle” saw Members of Parliament engaged in in-depth discussions on Public Policy making in Samoa and what Public Policy is in the Samoan context.

The Tasmanian Parliament and the University of Tasmania continue to support the Parliament of Samoa through its Capacity-Building Seminars under the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) twinning programme.
