No cuts to priority areas

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill said adjustments to the national budget had been implemented to support the economy.

“Like any resource dependent economy around the world, we have had our share of challenges that had made a huge reduction in our revenues,” O’Neill said today in Port Moresby.   

“And we have to adjust our budgets so we can meet the short fall.

“But we have made no cuts to main sectors, health, education and law and order.”

O’Neill is currently hosting Australia Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in the Papua New Guinea’s capital.

Turnbull will depart Port Moresby tomorrow.
