Don’t glorify PNG expats

Letters, Normal

The National, Tuesday 16th April 2013

 I REFER to the front page story of The National on April 8 and the editorial on April 9. Please tell us how PNG can benefit from those father and son pilots flying in the Middle East and those in other fields worki­n­g overseas? How much tax do they pay the IRC? We should not glorify those who get educated at PNG taxpayers’ expense and run away for their own benefit. PNG should be proud of our national pilots and other professionals who remain to develop this country. – Jacob Sekewa, Port Moresby
