Monthly accountability report by the Ministry of Regional Affairs
LETTER FROM THE MINISTER
I am pleased to release the fourth issue of Ministry Report, the monthly newsletter from the Ministry of Regional Affairs. As Minister I feel it is important to keep the region informed of what our projects are and what opportunities you have to get involved.
Here you will find the Ministry’s objectives for this month. In the next issue, I will account for the progress made on those objectives and will also establish new goals for the next month. I hope this will allow you to hold the government accountable and make sure we deliver on our promises.
I also hope that you will find projects and activities that seem interesting and decide to join the Ministry. You may have valuable experience of just the eagerness of someone who wants to learn. Either way, I would be more than happy to welcome you and show you how to get involved. Your adventure is just one telegram away!
