Correction to my post - 'I arrived home in 2007...' not 2017 as posted. [Now fixed - KJ]

Yesterday The National reported Forests Minister Douglas Tomuriesa saying "for more than 40 years nothing had been done to regulate downstream processing of log in the country although it was the way forward for PNG."

Worth noting he's been Forests Minister since 2012. There have been several ministerial statements over the past 40 years suggesting an end to export logging but that mauswara has never become enshrined in law. Friends of the large logger have seen to that.
