Using technology to provide clear messages and exchange information with officials in the field is crucial to delivering policy and program outcomes, particularly in circumstances as challenging as those facing members of the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands. For many months officials in Canberra and Honiara held their weekly Inter-Departmental Committee meeting via video conference. This picture was taken in Canberra, with images of Honiara and Canberra on the television screens at the rear.
