The President of the Autonomous Bougainville Government, Hon James Tanis, has called on the communications division to provide more information about Government activities to the public.
Mr Tanis made the call during a briefing with former Communications Minister, Hon Robert Hamal Sawa and his staff.
Mr Sawa is now Minister for Peace, Reconciliation and Weapons Disposal, but the President has asked him to remain in his old portfolio for a little while yet.
Mr Tanis said the division seems to be concentrating only in setting up communication facilities and forgetting about disseminating government information to the public.
He said the division of communications should strive to improve the dissemination of information to the masses. People must be told what the government is doing.
He said major government decisions, like tax collection by village assemblies, should be communicated to the people.
