Right on target Terry. And that was just the warm up for APEC in 2018. Should be some creative accounting going on soon.

Of course you should all remember that we did have the biggest and most expensive Pacific Games ever with the Minister for White Elephants burning up K3 billion plus and the flyover and all the other obscene roads and developments in NCDC.

Never mind, rural PNG. If it's not in POM it will not happen.

The Australian Government has spent a couple of million kina on a Kokoda 'Village Livelihoods Program' that is yet to produce a single taro plant along the entire Kokoda Trail after six years - wasted on consultants and 'capacity building' programs that were always destined to fail - and have!

Network Kokoda, a private not-for-profit company, is currently providing fresh produce to more than a thousand boarding students at Iaowari and Sogeri High Schools and have six villages on the Sogeri Plateau marketing their produce to supermarkets in POM via their agriculture centre at Sogeri - all without one cent of Australian Government funding!

Australian consultants should be required to live in villages for the duration of their pet projects; be accountable for outcomes; and be paid accordingly.
