Share the News

Deputy Prime Minister Charles Abel said the Government is serious about implementing its 100-Day Plan of action.

Minister Abel, said cross cutting measures like decreasing import levels and better taxation structure are some options the Government will take.

Mr. Abel mentioned these during a radio talkback show yesterday in Port Moresby. He said, the Plan is a short measure approach to help all sectors.

Speaking on NBC Talkback, Minister Abel said the 25 key points were a collective measure to be driven by all State agencies.

“It’s not a plan to solve everything at once, we will slowly address what needs attention while keeping the country moving forward,” said Abel.

He said, among the efforts, is a cutback on imports. Another option the Treasury Minister talked about is the current taxation structure used in the country.

Mr. Abel said a simpler taxation framework is needed. The former Planning Minister said the O’Neill-Abel led Government is doing its best to improve services despite criticisms of poor leadership and mismanagement of the economy.
