The fact is that every state has to build a concrete and sound foundation at the very moment of independence.

But when looking at PNG, it seem obvious, there are not set strategic plans for simple things like infrastructure. Like from this year to this year we will fund this roads with this standard of material; but we all over the place, getting loan after loan and budgetary handouts year in year out and back on the ground there is nothing tangible.

Roads are the only means of change; it will even cut the squatter settlements problems in PNG, but sadly, the state is not that capable to manage its own backyard due to the most significant issue corruption.

Then if PNG has problems, what is the use of giving aid to Pacific island states like Fiji? This tiny states are well off in most areas whilst we want to feign economic machine in the Pacific.

Charity begins at home and not abroad.

Fix the roads!
