The Papua New Guinea Olympic Committee reviewed its Strategic Plan for 2016 to 2020 during a mid-term workshop held last Saturday at the Lamana Hotel in Port Moresby.
Members of the Board, Management and staff of the PNG Olympic Committee attended the workshop and assessed the Plan with the aim of updating it with the most relevant and realistic targets.
All aspects of the Strategic Plan were closely assessed and measured against the outcomes and achievements of PNG Olympic Committee and Team PNG so far.
“We want our Strategic Plan to be a stronger document so the work we do will result in the PNG Olympic Committee becoming a stronger organization,” said Secretary General of the PNG Olympic Committee, Auvita Rapilla.
“A stronger organization will see improvement in our member National Federations, increased respect from our partners, more success for Team PNG and ultimately an organization that continues to inspire and unite Papua New Guineans through sporting excellence and success,” she said.

The Strategic Plan was adopted in 2016 and took into consideration the successes, failures and aims of the organization as well as for Team PNG and all stakeholders.
Rapilla said they want the plan to be realistic and relevant and this mid-term review provides that opportunity to update and further strengthen it.
“Our Strategic Plan is a live document, we have reviews with our management and progress is reported quarterly to the Board.
“There is more to improve and this workshop will help us see where changes need to be made,” Rapilla said.Among the targeted outcomes for the Strategic Plan is for the PNG Olympic Committee to be the best performing National Olympic Committee in the Pacific region and to have Team PNG Games success at upcoming events.
Other outcomes highlighted include partnering with stakeholders, enhancing National Federations and providing opportunities for athletes to inspire.
A report on the mid-term review will be presented to member National Federations at the upcoming Annual General Assembly on June 30, this year.
