Our Parliamentary Support Program continues to blossom. On Saturday 17 June,2022 a team of twelve Zimbabweans leaves for the United States to participate in an exchange visit focussing on Public Finance Management best practice. The team comprises 8 Parliament of Zimbabwe staff, 2 SAPST officers and 2 members of our training cohort drawn from our partners.
The study tour is a continuation of previous initiatives supported by USAID, where Parliament of Zimbabwe staff have been supported on attachments and study tours. Through sharing of experiences, the tour is intended to enhance the capacity of Parliament to play a meaningful role in Public Finance reforms that the Zimbabwe government is spearheading. Highlights of the tour include familiarisation visits to the New York Senate and lectures from leading luminaries in the field of Public Finance.
