The National Government has announced a K10million funding allocation for Anglimp South Waghi in Jiwaka Province.
This money is to boost the Agriculture sector in the district and the province.
The money will be drawn down from the K40 million earmarked for agriculture commercialization in the 2014 National Budget.
This announcement was made by National Planning Minister, Charles Abel when he visited the district last Thursday.
Minister Abel accepted an invitation by Anglimp South Waghi member, Komun Joe Koim for a visit to his district. Western Highlands Governor, Pias Wingti and Mul Baiyer MP, Koi Trappe were also part of the delegation that visited Kindeng.
Minister Abel said Anglimp, home to the fertile Waghi valley, will receive ten million kina to support agriculture projects.
Abel also made mention that the National government has already delivered fifty million kina for the Sepik plains as well as Ramu valley.
He told the crowd that the government’s focus now is on Waghi Valley, Baiyer-Madang and Karamui which need road access to fully utilize the agriculture potential.
Minister Abel made a further commitment of one hundred thousand kina to upgrade the Kindeng market.
Karamui and Baiyer-Madang will receive ten million kina each to build access roads.
Local member Komun Koim thanked the minister and the government for the funding.
In past months, Kindeng has experienced flooding and therefore, is in need of proper drainage to allow farmers to regrow their vegetable and coffee gardens.
The ten million kina will be used for Waghi valley drainage maintenance.
Meanwhile, the member presented a sawmill to the Onbis of Kindeng and an ambulance, and announced the renovation of Kindeng rural health centre.
Mr. Koim also committed a one hundred thousand kina commitment to upgrade Kindeng market, a bridge connecting Muglamp and a two hundred thousand kina water well project.
