BSP supports cultural festival with K5000


THE Bank of South Pacific is continuing to promote and keep PNG cultures alive by supporting the 2017 Warwagira and Mask Festival in Kokopo, East New Britain.
Since its inception, the Warwagira and Mask Festival has grown every year attracting tourists from as far as Europe and America.
BSP has maintained its silver sponsorship of K5000. The festival will be held from July 12 to 16.
BSP Kokopo branch manager Joe Makinta presented the cheque to the festival organising committee on Tuesday on behalf of the bank.
“BSP recognises the need and importance of promoting and showcasing our culture for our country’s economic empowerment,” Makinta said.
“Being a home-grown bank, it is our drive to see that PNG’s tourism and culture is being promoted with positive messages to other countries.
“The partnership between BSP and the organising committee has been in place since 2011 and we are proud to be supporting the festival again this year.”
The festival has always pulled people to East New Britain and provided fun-filled days of traditional singing from the New Britain region, neighbouring island and mainland provinces.
He said the BSP Kokopo staff would also be facilitating opening of accounts including the Sumatin Account, Kids Savings Account and Kundu Account, mobile banking and internet banking registrations during the festival.
