A regional workshop on the work of public accounts committees and parliamentary trade scrutiny in conjunction with the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association UK (CPA UK) will be held from February 27-29 in Trinidad and Tobago which will be attended by representatives from Montserrat, Jamaica, St Lucia, Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, the British Virgin Islands, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Barbados and Bermuda

“The workshop will bring together committee chairs, members, and clerks from 12 regional legislatures for peer-to-peer discussions on enhancing effective scrutiny of government spending and trade policy,” said UK (CPA UK).

“The aim of the workshop is to support learning between parliamentarians by delivering an informative programme with expert speakers in a collaborative exchange of knowledge. The workshop also provides parliamentarians space to build their network, and forge relationships that showcase the best practices for developing public financial scrutiny and trade,” it said.

It said further that CPA UK hopes to use the workshop to strengthen ties between the UK Parliament and legislatures in the region “and deliver a valuable knowledge-sharing platform for the parliamentarians and officials in attendance.”

Apart from providing a valuable knowledge-sharing platform for the parliamentarians and officials in attendance workshop will seek to strengthen ties between the UK Parliament and legislatures in the region.
