Bougainville after the Crisis has gone through major infrastructure development activities, as part of the restoration package between the National Government and aid donors.
Chief Momis in his recent ministerial speech said the Autonomous Bougainville Government has a commitment to deliver effective and efficient services for its people.
Projects will be implemented in Buka and Arawa; Bougainville’s former mining capital; those funded by ABG, the National Government’s Special Intervention including Australia and New Zealand’s Governance Implementation Fund.
The Governance Implementation Fund has been allocated to support technical vocational and education training of two million kina.
Part of this money was used to purchase a state house in Arawa, the President’s official residence and office, including those of the Chief Secretary and support staff.
Several State Owned Entities have begun work in Arawa including Air Niugini, Motor Vehicle insurance, PNG Power, Post PNG and Water PNG.
