    Thanks Sam

    It would be better to review the bilateral relationships agreement between Australia and PNG and see where direct budgetary support or program aid is mattered to both parties. Either aid funds channelled through Treasury or on development program, it serves the same purpose.

    Thank you Sam for you insights. While the call by Australia’s Minister for International Development Concetta Fierravanti-Wells may be unsettling to some, it is about time PNG leaders take greater responsibility and be more intentional about a departure from the aid-dependency syndrome.
