Alik L. Alik assembled the Cabinet and a number of staff earlier today to look ahead to upcoming undertakings for the executive branch and the rest of the National Government. High on the agenda was the approaching Investment Facilitation Symposium, slated to take place on May 6 to 9 at the College of Micronesia-FSM Palikir Campus.
Mr. Marion Henry, Secretary of Resources and Development, briefed the Cabinet on preparation progress for the symposium and indicated that an inter-office meeting for a run through on many organization aspects of the symposium will take place at his department tomorrow morning.
Vice President Alik also highlighted that the State and National Leadership Conference (SNLC) will immediately follow the symposium. The SNLC's main objective is to review (and possibly adopt) recommendations that will result from the three-day symposium.
The Department of Resources and Development, the secretariat for the symposium and the SNLC, stressed the need for all other departments and office to be ready to engage at these meetings as their focus and objectives are cross-sectoral.
