Challenge for graduates


PRIME Minister James Marape has urged graduates of the University of Natural Resources and Environment (UNRE) not to look for jobs, but create jobs for themselves.
Speaking to the 23rd graduates of UNRE at its Vudal campus on Friday, Marape told the young men and women not to graduate to “find a job” but to “create a job”.
“Don’t graduate and find a job, but graduate and create a job,” he said.
“Set your goal early and be disciplined.
“Don’t think beer, cigarettes and excessive partying will enable you to do well in your life.
“Stay focused, stay on course.”
Marape said the Government’s focus right now was on agriculture and renewable resources.
He said UNRE was the right university teaching the right courses.
He said fisheries, agriculture and tourism were the most important sectors which were currently boosting the economy of PNG.
Marape said agriculture, fisheries and tourism would help sustain Papua New Guinea’s economy today and into the future
Meanwhile, he thanked UNRE council members, vice-chancellor Dr Ponji Kitchawen and all faculty heads for their work in developing the university.
Marape presented a cheque for K300,000 to UNRE for wifi.
