In July, the NCCJS expanded its international contacts by hosting two visitors from the Statistical Services Branch within Papua New Guinea's Correctional Services Department. As part of their visit to Australia, Reuben Manamb and Joyce Ninigi spent five days with Robert Letheby and Nick Skondreas from the NCCJS looking at practices and procedures relating to the collection, processing and dissemination of national corrective services data. The visit by Reuben and Joyce also involved their working with the Productivity Commission and the Victorian Department of Justice. This combined effort by all three organisations provided an invaluable opportunity to assist in the improvement of corrective services statistics in Papua New Guinea. It also permitted the ABS to expand its knowledge of data collection and the production of statistics in the Asia-Pacific region. A successful outcome for all!
