Company pledges to support constituents


THE Ramu NiCo Management (MCC) Ltd in Madang has indicated that it will help any meaningful attempts to boost the socioeconomic situation of the people of ward six in the Madang urban local level government (MULLG) through the ward committee.
Ramu NiCo (MCC) community affairs department gender and agriculture supervisor Allan Wahwah told the MULLG ward six people at the Gospel Lighthouse ground that they would help the ward.
He said the company had earlier presented K2,500 to ward six councillor Mathew Menelep to help its mini show committee for independence anniversary.
Ward six of MULLG hosts Ramu NiCo’s headquarters in Madang town.
Wahwah said specific focus on development areas could be assisted by MCC in partnership with ward six and other development partners.
“The advice and project proposals would be drawn up by MCC free of charge, unlike services you get from so-call ‘consultants’ which are costly,” Wahwah said.
He said MCC was willing to conduct training for women and youth empowerment in agriculture, poultry-raising, sewing, baking, cooking, floriculture, financial literacy, SME start-up and management, project proposal writing and management and livelihood sustainability
Wahwah said the company may provide business development advice, planning, management, marketing and awareness on cross-cutting issues in partnership with development partners on health, climate change and other challenges. He said the community affairs team would also promote financial inclusion products.
