Very happy that we now have a government that is saying the right things as far broadening our economic base and building a more inclusive and sustainable economy is concerned.

Also very happy that the government has finally recognised implementation as the important missing link in realising government policy. This year has been declared the year of implementation with all government trips and conferences (both locally and internationally) put on ice.

But as the say, the proof is in the pudding. Can't wait for this time next year for see the actual performance assessment report card.

There sounds like a lot of good logic in these plans for improving small and medium sized businesses in PNG and the Productive Partnership in Agriculture Project should help the cocoa and coffee industry.

Let's hope the PNG public servants are up to the job!

I hear that many of the older generation of public servants, with years of experience, are dying at an early age.

These types of jobs carry a lot of strain as the men and women of the public service often "live in two worlds"; the modern commercial world, and the subsistence world of their parents, back in the village.
