Royalties Due

Ramu 1 Royalties Due

Minister for Public Enterprise and State Investment, William Duma said the issue is a legacy issue that in time, will be rectified through review and re-negotiation.

Eastern Highlands Governor, Peter Numu expressed frustration for his people in regards to royalty payments.

He said, “Ever since the establishment of Yonki Dam or Ramu 1, the provincial government and the landowners have not benefitted from any royalties as the natural resource owners. Absolutely zero.”
