PNG Chamber of Commerce backs more Australian involvement

10:58 am on 19 September 2003

The President of the PNG Chamber of Commerce, Michael Mayberry, backs the proposal for more Australian invovlement.

He says unemployment and the resulting social problems are the key factors affecting the country and people are now calling for action to be taken.

"Whatever has been done up until now hasn't brought the outcomes that the general population would be happy to have. I think in fairness to the present government, there has been some changes, but the thing is that the rest of the community is saying that we need more."
