The National Cultural Commission (NCC) , a mandated agency to oversee cultural affairs in the country is pleased to launch its 5-year cultural strategic plan for 2023-2027. This plan was derived from the National Cultural policy that was launched last year.

The Minister for Tourism, Isi Henry Leonard mentioned that, in order for the policy to work and serve its purpose, the National Cultural Commission had to create a 5 year strategic plan on how to roll out this policy.

NCC Board member, Janet Sios, highlighted that the plan sets out clearly the targets and priority areas that NCC and its affiliated cultural institutes will implement in the next 5 years.
NCC executive director Steven Kilanda said, it took 2 years for the commission to develop this strategic plan and PNG is the first in the country to develop a cultural policy and plan.

He revealed that NCC is a small government agency and funding is an issue for the organization, however, since culture is part of the government agenda, they will continue to deliver to achieve the Medium Term Development Plan IV (MTDP 4)
