 SIR Paulias Matane has congratulated Treasurer Don Polye after his appointment as chairman of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund.

“We are as good as anybody else in the world,” he said.

Sir Paulias said Polye’s post in Word Bank and International Monetary Fund was a great achievement for Papua New Guinea and it required honesty and commitment to get that far.

“We need more people from this country to hold such posts,” he said. 

“The only way to go that far is to be honest and hard working.”

Sir Paulias urged students to work hard in school and learn as much as they can to be able to represent PNG in such posts which are important and recognised.
