Unfair and injustice development distribution in Papua New Guinea is a concern for citizens

by CHARLIE CLYDE TIKARO 
 
A K120-million ground breaking ceremony was held today in Port Moresby to start work on the multi million kina APEC House.

Minister responsible for APEC Hon Justin Tkatchenko said the building will become an iconic structure for the country, showcasing PNG to the world.

The ground work contract was awarded to GLOBAL CONSTRUCTION, company owned and operated by senior government officials.

Few weeks back, government secured a K89-million loan from World Bank to finance an uneconomical road in Hon Charles Abel’s electorate in Alotau. Maybe because Charles Abel is a key Government Minister and senior member in the PNC Party.

Back in Menyamya district, Morobe’s largest coffee producers and other fresh vegetables and fruits such as apples are still battling with the thick mud in order to reach Lae City to sell their produce and contribute to the economy of PNG.

Even Wau-Bulolo's national highway, the highway that host Hidden Valley and Waffi Gold Mines, Zenag and PNG Forest Product is worsening and in dire need for mere proper road upgrade after it was washed away by Snake River.

Is this a symptom of UNEQUAL DISTRIBUTION OF GOODS & SERVICES in the country?

Is it difficult to secure another loan from World Bank to fix Menyamya and Wau-Bulolo road once and for all?

And besides, APEC Minister said the building will showcase PNG to the rest of the world. If I were him, I would simply rephrase that statement. It will not showcase PNG but Port Moresby only at the expense of Menyamya and Wau-Bulolo.

The real iconic structure to show the world about PNG is seen in the photo attached. Same in 2005 and remain unchanged after 11 years, 2016.
