PNG NRI Council Chairman’s Seminar Series
Population, Statistics, and Society Seminar
The PNG National Research Institute (PNG NRI) cordially invites the media to the PNG NRI Council Chairman’s Seminar Series. The Seminar Series is the first of its kind for PNG NRI to host. The Seminar Series will discuss important and pressing topical issues that the nation is facing.
The First Seminar is Population, Statistics, and Society. The following Departments/Institutions have been invited to make presentations: Department of Provincial Local Government Affairs (DPLGA), PNG Civil Identity and Registry, PNG Electoral Commission, PNG National Statistical Office, and Department of Information, Communication and Technology.
The Chairman’s Seminar Series is about bringing together different voices and shared experiences. Among us, there are academia; researchers; policy analysts; policy practitioners and implementers; and decision-makers and implementers. The PNG NRI is urging all leaders of the respective government ministries and agencies, heads of government departments, heads of research organisations, researchers and policy analysts, and the universities to join the Institute, as we embark on a promising year of greater collaboration and networking.
The PNG NRI is mandated to perform its role as the leading research authority in the social sciences, however, it does not exist in a vacuum. The Government established the PNG NRI to conduct research and to use the research information to solve the nation’s development challenges, issues, and problems.
The PNG NRI is extending this invitation to the media to attend and be part of the dialogue in disseminating information for better future planning and implementation leading to a better quality of life for all Papua New Guineans.
