'Food basket'

POM’s potential ‘food basket’

Local member Lekwa Gure said the Central Province district will do this by capitalising on its agriculture sector.

Agriculture is one of the district’s potential sectors and with its headquarters – the Kwikila Township – an hour-and-a-half away from one of the country’s biggest markets, Port Moresby, presents numerous opportunities.

“That is the biggest opportunity we are trying to capitalise on and make Rigo District the food basket for the National Capital District,” said Gure.

The office of the member is now in dialogue with external stakeholders.
