Bougainville leaders have reaffirmed their commitment to the Bougainville Vision 2052 Framework as the blueprint for planning and development in Bougainville.

This commitment was further solidified through the signing four key resolutions under the ‘One Plan, One Budget’ principle following the conclusion of the 2023 ABG Leaders Symposium in Buka today. 

The resolutions reached include endorsement of:

  1. The draft Bougainville Integrated Strategic Development Plan 2023-2027(MTDP1), 
  2. The draft Vision 2052 Framework,
  3. The Development Budget Focus for 2024 to 2027 subject to fiscal capacity,
  4. The ‘One Plan, One Budget’ principle to foster the ‘One People, One Nation, One Vision’ concept 

This milestone was reached following intense discussions by leaders at the political and administrative levels on Bougainville’s long term development and preparations towards independence.

The resolutions were signed by ABG President Hon. Ishmael Toroama, ABG Vice President Hon. Patrick Nisira, while the National Bougainville Members were represented by National Regional Member for Bougainville Hon. Peter Tsiamalili Junior.

The signing of the resolutions marks a huge step towards greater collaboration and alignment of resources and development priorities for Bougainville’s long term development.
