Policies should not be detrimental to PNG: Steven

Minister for Justice and Attorney General, Davies Steven, says policies developed should not be detrimental to the country.

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.

“We will go and support the trade minister and the department to encourage an environment where our people can be participating and to support investment but not to the detriment of our own local interest.

“So that’s the type of readiness and support that I want to bring to all these other institutions.”
