Well 2010 is here, it’s the tenth anniversary of the Friends of Suai (FoS) friendship. We are planning a number of special events this year to celebrate friendship.
The first municipal elections will be held in 2 stages across the country in 2010. There are high expectations that decentralization will assist development in the rural areas. City of Port Phillip is keen to encourage development of local government to Cova Lima district.
Bill Armstrong, Chairperson of the Friends of Suai Community Steering Committee and I will travel to Suai in February to meet with counterparts and community leaders. We will be seeking feedback on both the good and challenging aspects of the friendship. We will be engaging in preliminary planning with local leadership for strategic directions into the future to be brought back to be considered by Port Phillip Council.
