Government Plans to Continue to Invest in Education, Health and Infrastructure

The O’Neill-Dion Government plans to complete its term by continuing to invest in education, health and infrastructure.

Following the outcome of the Vote of No Confidence on Friday, Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill, says the government will move forward in ensuring it achieves the goals laid out in the Alotau Accord.

In a statement released by the Prime Minister the government claims it has achieved 80 per cent of its goals set out in the Alotau Accord from 2014.

The statement highlighted government policies in increasing the number of police personnel from the current 600 to 1,000 by the year 2018, the funding approach towards the 2017 National General Election, and infrastructural development in rural areas.

The Prime Minister made this statement following Friday’s unsuccessful Vote of No Confidence.

EMTV News understands that the Prime Minister will be meeting with other state ministers this Thursday to discuss these issues.

Meanwhile, when parliament next sits in August it will be tabling the Bill on the establishment of the Independent Commission Against Corruption and Cyber Security Legislations.
