Government To Focus On Rural Development

It’s now time, the National and Provincial Government’s must be very serious in delivering service, right into the rural areas of Papua New Guinea.

This is the message from National Economical Fiscal Commission Chief Executive Officer, Hohora Suve. These are the forgotten people who are far inland and are cut off from government services


Service delivery is the name of this game; this statement from Mr Suve, at the Highlands Regional Workshop undergoing in Goroka, Eastern Highlands Province.


People in inland rural areas of this country are silently suffering, not benefiting from government basic services like education, health and transport infrastructure.


He challenged public servants to be agents of change, to ensure that services reach out to these areas. 


Anti-Corruption Development Practitioner, John ToGuata said the government must have a heart for people, providing the much needed services.


The focus of development must be on rural areas. Inter-government financing and service delivery is the focal point of discussion in this workshop.


The theme ‘Government Money, Arteries and Services’, identify roles of the hidden system of money flow, for delivery of service. 


Attending are Provincial Governments of Eastern Highlands, Western Highlands, Southern Highlands, Enga, Simbu, Jiwaka and Hela.
