NA Party aims to save PNG economy

The National Alliance Party believes it has the experience to improve the country’s economy.

"We are not promising overnight miracles,” says NA Party Leader, Patrick Pruaitch.  

“It will take time to work through current cash flow problems and to stabilise the economy.”

Pruaitch said the NA-led Government in 2002-2007 did rescue the country’s economy from a deficit to surplus budget.

He states that the current economic climate is challenging because of the K15 billion explosion in public sector debt in the past five years.

"One of the goals I have set myself if I have the honour and privilege of becoming Prime Minister is to nurture faster economic growth as quickly as possible, and aim to hit a steady 5-6 percent growth annually in the medium term.”
