Report more on positive stories: Minister

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.

Kulang hails naming of aircraft ‘Kokoda’

Minister Kulang said the name Kokoda, not only symbolises a significant part of our war history but that of our neighbours in Australia and the name also remains synonymous with the rest of the world.  

“Kokoda remains a flagship tourism product for PNG and by naming its latest Fokker 70 Kokoda, the Board and Management of Air Niugini have given more meaning and significance to the idles and values that define the history of the battle of Kokoda,” said Mr Kulang.
