Papua province Governor Lukas Enembe has told Madang Governor Peter Yama that there is no time for PNG to waste on politics, but time to be serious about economic and trade investment.
Governor Enembe said his last trip to PNG; he saw myriad investment and trade opportunities between the two countries and wants it enhanced further and immediately.
Enembe said Papua wants to be the doorway for PNG and has also singled out that it was now time for PNG and Papua to be in business together, calling of PNG to forget about China and India and foster a better and stronger economic tie with PNG and Papua.
“We want to act as your doorway to South East Asia. You know, these countries especially Singapore, Philippines, Thailand, China, Brunei, and many others they contribute 40 per cent to the world economy and if Papua can be the doorway, Papua New Guinea can have the biggest opportunity and chance to get involved in this economic cooperation,” Enembe said.
“Now is not the time to talk politics anymore, it is time to talk economy and yes, we want to help our brothers in Madang, Momase and eventually Papua New Guinea.”
“We want to stand together with you our brothers so we can make use of the great opportunities that we both have.
“We hope our signing becomes the basis and foundation of the beginning of our cooperation and economic bilateral relations.”
He said part of the huge opportunity for both sides would be for young entrepreneurs or businessman and woman to make use of the relations currently in place.
“It’s time to end looking to China or India, let us help each other, we are optimistic and I want to tell you that I want to help you my brothers.
“We are not only neighbour’s, we are brothers, so we help each other where we can possible,” he said.
