The Bureau of Public Affairs, Media and Communication (the Bureau) is a government division within the Autonomous Bougainville Government (ABG). Most of the ABG divisions are in a state of flux and are continuing to develop and are in various stages of being efficient and effective. Due to the referendum coming up between 2015 and 2020, the Bureau will have an important function in promoting the referendum and providing information to the community about the referendum and what it means for Bougainville and its people.
In the last few years the Bureau has developed a mobile radio station which goes out to the different regions of Bougainville and a Bougainville paper which will continue to be developed and published in the years leading up to the referendum.
The Bureau is based in Buka.
