Policies should not be detrimental to PNG: Steven

The Attorney General said his ministry will ensure that this does not happen and this will be through working coherently with other State ministries and institutions.

Steven highlighted the National Trade Policy which was launched early this month.

He said he has put together a team to look through the Policy so the Ministry can take actions that are necessary on their part to begin work on it.

Minister to ensure ICAC bill gets tabled

He said since taking on the role, he has already spoken with key governance agencies and there is already a movement to ensure necessary procedures are complied with to get the ICAC bill back on the agenda.

The Attorney General, however, says having the bill passed will not be as easy as they do not enjoy the numbers they had previously in the 9th parliament, as a constitutional bill requires a majority vote.
