PNG should be proud

The Culture and Tourism Minister, Emil Tammur, says PNG should be proud.

The Minister admitted the despite some logistical challenges, the 150-member PNG contingent will be flying the flag high at the 6th Melanesian Festival of Arts in Honiara.

The Minister, who also took time to be part of the contingents’ welcome parade on Sunday, said the country needed positive news about human and cultural empowerment through a celebration of customs and traditions unique to the region.

Minister Tammur says the two week festival will be a good opportunity to exchange cultures and develop on bilateral relationships beyond the political arena.
