Business council calls on government to protect businesses

BCPNG president, Susil Nelson-Kongoi recounted how business houses in Port Moresby lost millions of kina in just one day.

She said the private sector and businesses pay hefty fees and incur enormous costs to operate in the country.

President Kongoi has called on the government to put security measures and tougher penalties in place to protect the retailers from the loss and damages caused by violence as seen yesterday.

“The business affected yesterday will not only impact the owners, but every person employed and will also put a strain on the government’s revenue”.
