FSM Peer Review Team briefed the President on visits to FSM States
The past two weeks, the team has been conducting meetings with government officials, business sector members, NGO's and others to review the national planning, budgeting, public financial and aid management processes in line with the Pacific Forum Compact for Forum member-countries.
At the briefing, the team made some general observations on their completed state visits and informed the FSM that a write up of its findings and recommendations will be presented in about six weeks time for review and comments by FSM. After such review and subject to FSM's input, the team will produce the final report on its findings and recommendations which will also be available on the PIF website and presented to the Forum during its 2013 annual Members meeting.
The briefing was also attended by the President's Cabinet members, staff from the embassies, and other national government staff.
Details of the team's findings as presented at the briefing will be released after official documents are received and accepted by the FSM Government.
