economic autonomy

Muthuvel calls for economic autonomy

Governor Muthuvel made these remarks during the ‘Governors and Ministers conference’ in Port Moresby yesterday.

“I am sure other provinces face similar challenges, but in West New Britain, the provincial government has to deal with these issues under immense difficulties.

“While I am not one to shift blame and I try my absolute best to solve these issues, it must be made absolutely clear that these challenges are made difficult due to the centralization of powers in Port Moresby.
