Masere aims to develop agriculture and tourism


Ijivitari MP Richard Masere aims to clean up his district and set a standard by developing agriculture and tourism in Northern.
Speaking at the presentation of the K34 million acquittal, Masere said they have learnt from the past and will ensure that Ijivitari takes the lead in development.
He said 2018 is going to be an exciting year for Ijivitari as they develop agriculture and tourism.
“We’ve already established a committee to host the first ever Tufi Cultural Show and we are going to write letters to the Tourism Promotion Authority and to P&O Cruises to make them aware of the cultural show as part of our effort to develop tourism in the district,” Masere said.
“We will write to the rural airstrip authority to upgrade some of our airstrips in the districts.”
He said roads are being built in some areas to open up tourism opportunities.
Masere said Australia has agreed to build a double classroom and aid post in Buna.
“We’ve had brief discussions with personnel from the Australian High Commission and they have agreed to support with the classroom and aid posts,” he said.
Talks are being held with the Government for a road from Musa sub district to Kupiano in Central.
“That will open up a corridor of investment and business to help the people of Oro travel to Central to link up with Port Moresby,” Masere said.
“We are serious about making a difference. If you want to understand how to develop a nation, you build roads.”
