I am the Research Coordinator with the Transparency International Papua New Guinea (TIPNG). I have been employed with TIPNG since 2014 and have worked on the national Memberships Programme and stakeholder engagement. I am at present an officer responsible for OGP, and other research activities within the chapter.

As the CSO co-chair for the PNG OGP Steering Committee, TIPNG has been at the forefront of drafting the country's first National Action Plan 2016-18 (NAP-1). I, personally have been coordinating the work on the Freedom of Information commitment cluster and have been responsible for that component in the NAP-1.

My intention to attend the OGP Global Summit in Paris is to represent the Papua New Guinea CSOs as part of the national delegation. I will also provide input on how the technical working groups and the steering committee have been instantiated in Papua New Guinea.

I have previously taken part in the ADB sponsored 2016 Asia Pacific OGP Regional Dialogue from 20-22nd June in Manila, Philippines.
