The National,Tuesday June 21st, 2016

A BUSINESSMAN on Manus has ventured into the accommodation business to provide competition to those already in the sector.
Mochon Peter is the owner of the Kingfisher Lodge at Lorengau on Manus Island, about a 20-minute drive from Momote Airport.
Peter and his wife also own one of the two wholesale companies on the island known as Juromo Enterprise.
They also own a hardware and building supplies company and stationary shop.
The Kingfisher Lodge has six rooms for K330 per night, plus self-contained room for K390 per night.
The lodge offers special rates for long-term residency.  Peter also owns the Kingfisher High Care which has a fleet of vehicles for hire.
Manus is PNG’s smallest province, both in terms of land mass and population, but has a vast sea area rich with marine life and beautiful coral reefs. The province consists of a group of islands, known as the Admiralty Islands and a scattering of low lying mostly uninhabited atolls, with the northern border reaching the equator.
