Lagaip-Porgera district presents 2018 budget

The budget targets infrastructure development, ageing health, education, escalating law and order issues and economic sectors that had been neglected by successive governments.

The Lagaip-Porgera District Development Authority chairman and local MP, Tomait Notassi Kapili, presented the budget to the Department of Implementation & Rural Development (DIRD) in Port Moresby last Thursday (April 19).

Kapili said DDA board was unable to prepare a supplementary budget for the last quarter of 2017 after the national elections.
