THE launch of the medium-term development plan 3 by the Government is a unique national development plan that incorporates all the vital sectors of the economy.
It is a profoundly ambitious plan devised by a very determined government at the back of an uncertain outlook of our national economy.
There is confidence that the plan will yield optimum benefits for the country and transform our economic landscape because it has been dedicated to God, who is the ultimate source of our life.
This master plan has been formulated as a result of an extensive nationwide consultation between all the stakeholders, including our people in rural communities and is consistent with the agenda for “inclusive and sustainable economic growth”, especially in the areas of health, education and infrastructure.
I commend Prime Minister Peter O’Neill and Planning Minister Richard Maru for their visionary leadership, the CACC team and the Department of National Planning for their resilience in putting together a bankable development plan that will be implemented to fulfill the dreams and aspirations of our people, now and into the future.
