Area sees growth in businesses


SMALL businesses in Waria Valley are beginning to sprout following the operation of the Spirit of Bulolo aircraft serving people in communities as far as Tekadu on the border of Morobe and Gulf.
The aircraft transports crops and fresh produce to and from markets in Wau and Lae, plus school and health materials.
It convinced Northern Governor Garry Juffa to pledge K100,000 to have the air service extended to Sohe village on the border of Morobe and Goilala.
Juffa and Bulolo MP Sam Basil will sign the deal at Kira station next week.
Basil told Ward 17 people in Waria council, Bia-Waria, that the air service would serve the people while a road was being built.
“Road is the fundamental element. If it reaches Waria Valley by 2017 followed by rural electrification, dramatic changes in lives will occur along the valley.”
The second aircraft to be named Garaina Tea will be bought in December.
Kabwum MP Bob Dadae accompanied Basil to witness the closing of Garaina circuit conference at Saka Mission station last Sunday.
They later walked to Mukeri then to Bakeri, spent the night with people as Telekom technician Aaron English rewired VSat and EMTV service.
They also visited new airstrip construction site for Bakeri.
