Secretariat subsidises freight cost for farmers


THE Central Side Kokoda Track Secretariat has presented a K186,860 cheque to an aviation firm to subsidise the freight cost of farm produce from farmers in the remote villages.
Secretariat chairman Philip Batia said people were important and must be the priority in every development initiative.
He said Airborne Logistics had been serving the people in the remote villages of Kokoda very well.
He said the Government through the Kokoda Initiative housed at the Conservation and Environment Protection Authority made available the funding.
“This is the first time and we thank Minister for Environment John Pundari and Cepa managing director Gunther Joku for finally making some funding available for the landowners,” Batia said.
