MTDP is way to go, PNG

Letters, Normal

YOUR report “Government unveils plan” (Oct 12) is indeed encouraging.
I commend young national leaders in the likes of Paul Tiensten for their vision in moving this country forward and getting the NEC to endorse the MTDP.
The MTDP is a roadmap with realistic and measurable outcomes.
The challenge now lies in the implementation.
Tiensten’s bid to mobilise development partners to align their near-term plans and consolidating all possible sources of support and resources, including the government, private sector and donors is the way to go.
The National Planning Department must now take full ownership of its implementation, stay focused and move towards achieving results over the next five years.
