PM Clarifies Termination

The reason for the removal of Taureka, after 20 months, was tied to the performances of KCH and State-Owned Enterprises and missed national project deadlines. 

Prime Minister James Marape in a statement explained that the reforms of the SOEs were endorsed by the Government in October 2019. 

“We see it as the most-significant reform programme to be instigated by any Government since the corporatisation of the State utilities and the creation of the Independent Public Business Corporation (IPBC), now the KCH.
