Agriculture key to economy: Lelang

Papua New Guinea needs to build its economy on a platform that is inclusive and sustainable, and agriculture should be supported and built as the back bone of the country’s economy going forward, says Joseph Lelang, Member for Kandrian/ Glouster.

PNG should target agricultural entrepreneurs

Papua New Guinea should target transforming 70% of subsistence farmers into small/medium progressive agricultural entrepreneurs in the next 10 years, says Dr Sergie Bang, NARI Director General.

The essence of this transformation was one of the premises of the 2015 Agricultural Innovations Show theme – ‘Agricultural Innovations for SME Development and Rural Empowerment’.
