Follow procedures to boost confidence in us: Contractor

In an interview with Loop PNG, Managing Director of Kemele Constructions, Firman Joseph, said when local companies do not implement projects correctly, it becomes a setback for many PNG companies.

On Friday, Joseph signed an K8.54 million project with the National Airports Corporation (NAC) to implement an Asian Development Bank funded fencing and associated works contract at the Buka Airport.

And he says they will work hard to deliver the project on time and meet global standards so that other PNG companies can benefit.
