Report more on positive stories: Minister

Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister, Emil Tammur, has called for the media in Papua New Guinea to report more on positive stories.

Minister Tammur said the nation was at a critical stage of its development and constant negative publications of news stories by the PNG media was unhelpful for progress and development.

Tammur called on media houses to focus on driving a positive news agenda to stimulate growth and investment for our country, not only in tourism but in all sectors of the economy.

He said with PNG already engaged in hosting APEC meetings, we should all be resonating what makes us a proud people in the Pacific and the wider global community.

Meanwhile, the minister highlighted that the next Senior Officials Meeting at the end of this month will be the Tourism Ministers’ Meeting from the 21 APEC Economies.

Tammur says that his Ministry together with the Tourism Promotion Authority are in advanced stages of preparations in hosting this important meeting.
