Coffee to have its own ministry: Pangu Pati

Pangu Pati plans to revitalise the coffee industry if it forms the government after the 2017 National Election.

“Party leader (Sam Basil) made a commitment to establish a ministry for Coffee alone, turning Coffee Industry Corporation into a ministry because it is the back bone of PNG,” Party General Secretary Morris Tovebae said.

He added that the party plans to also increase budget allocation to the agriculture sector to K1 billion annually.

Tovebae said this is the message the party will take into the elections.

He was speaking at the National Research Institute Political Parties Forum held on Tuesday in Port Moresby.
