The Ministry of Land and Natural Resources has appointed Rosamond Carter Bing as the Ministry’s new chief executive officer.
Ms. Bing is a law graduate of the Australian National University where she also attained a Master of Laws.
She has been a member of the Tongan Bar since 2001.
“With over 10 years of experience in the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, Ms. Bing has progressed through her public service career in the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources in 2002 from her first posting as a Principal Assistant Secretary, then most recently as a consulting Legal Administrator”, a statement said.
Bing’s appointment was historical for the government to have appointed two sisters as head of some of its ministries.
Ms Bing’s younger sibling, Ms Ana Bing Fonua is the CEO of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
“The Public Service Commission welcomes Ms. Bing to her new appointment and wishes her well in her tenure as CEO of the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources”.
