Kina depreciate

Juffa: Continuous declining of Kina - a missed opportunity

The ‘Walk the Talk’ Governor for Oro Garry Juffa in response to Loop PNG questions regarding the depreciation of the kina made those remarks.

However, he said since this sector was poorly developed, real benefits would not be realised by Papua New Guineans.

He added that the major agriculture exporters were foreign owned and thus they would be the true beneficiaries while PNG would only benefit from the sale of the raw products.

“This holds true on the exchange rate,” Hualupmomi said.

“It appears clearly that the currency is not necessarily affected by the US dollar but by domestic macroeconomic management.
