Rural children will suffer


THE government has done great injustice to 95 per cent of Papua New Guinea’s children in primary and secondary schools, who live in rural areas, by cutting the tuition free fee (TFF).
How does the government expect 95 per cent of the country’s population who are unemployed or on basic wage to pay half of the school fees?
It is interesting to note that resource developers such as the LNG projects, mining, fisheries, logging, real estate developers and other foreign owned industries are on tax holidays.
The mining, logging and fisheries sectors are not paying any taxes on their profits from the millions of kina they harvest from our resources annually. Why?
Stop giving tax holidays to thieves and get everyone in the resource sector to pay taxes.
Something has gone foul in this budget.
Beware Papua New Guineans whom you vote to parliament in the next elections.
