Sir Julius said yesterday New Ireland had very clear political agendas of achieving the highest form of autonomy, gain formula for maximum benefits from its natural resources and changing the mining, oil and gas laws to return ownership back to the landowning group. “These are the pillars for major structural reforms that Papua New Guinea needs to recover from the deep economic woes we are encountering right now. “The country is filthy rich in natural resources, oil and gas but we are struggling with heavy debt burdens we cannot live with. “We need to be honest with ourselves that we have made bad mistakes that landed us in deep murk and take bold decisions to recover. “This is what the Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill, requested me to do and my team of government advisers on … [Read more...] about Sir Julius appeals to New Irelanders
