Naoro Brown hydropower project

Letters, Normal

The National, Monday July 8th, 2013

 ON behalf of the landowners of Naoro Brown hydropower project and the people of Koiari, I would like to thank the PNG national government for its commitment to provide counterpart funding amounting to K2.3 million to a project which will provide more power to the people living in the capital city.

I also want to thank the World Bank which has committed its time and effort in funding the project to the tune of K18.55 million that will help develop Central Province as well as PNG Power senior management staff and their technical assistance  team who have worked hard in negotiating with the Naoro Brown landowners over this project.

We are happy that the project is off the ground and will safeguard it as it will open the doors for us to receive basic services as well as deliver social and economic benefits.
