Road access

EU-STREIT rehabilitates road access for farmers

It is progressing on improving the efficiency of value chain enablers, including sustainable, climate-proof transport infrastructure development in Papua New Guinea.

Led by the International Labour Organization (ILO), these two roads will support farming communities involved in cocoa, vanilla, and fisheries production to access further markets with more rewarding prices, and open up rural communities for agribusiness opportunities.

Road access after 18 years

The Wautogik road was opened yesterday by Yangoru-Saussia MP and National Planning and Monitoring Minister, Richard Maru, and Member for Wewak, Kevin Isifu.

People danced, cheered and celebrated the road opening.

For 18 years these villagers walked more than 4 hours to reach the main Highway to get PMVs to travel into Wewak Town or other parts of the province.
