New POM technical infrastructure projects open

The PNG Government funded infrastructure development projects at the Port Moresby Technical College were formally opened by Prime Minister James Marape on November 15th.

Though the institution has progressed slowly, it has transformed well.

Port Moresby Technical College has been offering certificate programs for the last seven decades. However, since the lodging of the five year strategic plan, changes have taken place in the areas of school infrastructure, staff and curriculum development.

The project initiatives in the college were six fully completed lecture rooms with hard equipment, three fully completed staff houses, one electrical library building and a perimeter fencing.

Prime Minister Marape encouraged the institution to develop programs that will enrich the young people of PNG to be skilful and competent.

“Am now as your Prime Minister, I’m giving you the flexibility to be autonomous and be innovative at your own school level.”

Upon the recent achievements in terms of infrastructure development, the institution is looking forward to becoming a polytechnical college.
