Ramsey Pariwa

Governor Pariwa Meets with Chinese Ambassador

The meeting was described as the ‘fruit of the good relationship’ set by Governor Pariwa and Ramu NiCo Management (MCC) Limited, with MCC now acting as the bridge to work hand-in-hand with the Chinese investors through the Embassy, to further serve the people of the province.

Ambassador Fanhua highlighted in the meeting that Ramu NiCo Management is the face of China in Madang and for a Governor to have more interest to partner with their state owned enterprise is a good sign for more Chinese investor confidence through the embassy.

Court dismisses Pariwa’s application

Pariwa through his lawyer, Martin Kombri, wanted to dismiss the petition alleging grounds of abuse of process.

The application was filed arguing that the election petition Rules and the Organic Law were breached when the petition was prepared by the lawyers assisting the petitioner and not by the petitioner (Mr Yama) himself.

A similar application was earlier filed by Pariwa as well raising series of allegations against Yama’s lawyer Ben Lomai of Lomai Attorney but the application was dismissed.

SEZ Experts Visit Middle Ramu District

The JDI team also visited the proposed Rai Coast SEZ, led by Vice Minister for International Trade and Investment and Rai Coast MP, Kessy Sawang. They will visit Finschaffen in Morobe Province and Pomio in the East New Britain Province next week. A visit to the proposed Port Moresby Industrial Park and Western Province is also scheduled to conclude their visits to all proposed SEZ locations.

JDI has been working with the local experts to help Papua New Guinea formulate its SEZ Masterplan.

Pariwa express concern at capacity issues

Governor Ramsey Pariwa who was part of Minister Maru’s delegation to Thailand last week expressed concern at the lack of infrastructures such as road accessibility, electricity problem and lack of water supply in the country.

“Thai companies have expressed interest to invest in PNG, if we are able to provide land, electricity, bridges, roads wharfs and enabling infrastructures,” he said.  

The Governor expressed confidence at Thai Investors to help PNG in its endeavor to develop Special Economic Zones including the failed PMIZ project in Madang.
