National, Normal


THE upcoming liquefied natural gas project will create many employment opportunities and this is the future of the country’s next generation.
National Planning Minister and Pomio MP Paul Tiensten said this during a ceremony at Malabunga Secondary School on Monday.
He also urged the students to work hard and excel in their studies.
He told the Grade 12 students that there would be a lot of opportunities available in all types of technical trades and the LNG project would be the avenue that would cater for them.
Tiensten reiterated that the LNG would be the future for PNG and it was the way forward in development for human resource.
The government had taken on the LNG project that would see an immense impact on the economy, Tiensten said, adding that there would be a lot of job opportunities available for students to apply for.
He said the government had recently been aligning most of its programmes with the Vision 2050 of which the project would be the catalyst.
School principal Panuel Manuke said the school had been one of the premier learning institutions in the province and its students had always tried their best to excel in their studies.
A businessman and ex-student Eremas Wartoto also committed K15,000 to the school during the minister’s visit, that would be used to upgrade, buy new computers and install internet facilities in the laboratory.
