Academic wants resource benefits shared

A LEADING PNG academic has said one of the biggest challenges facing the PNG government is finding ways to ensure everyone benefits from the major resource projects.

Dr Thomas Webster of the PNG National Research Institute made the comments at a PNG-Australia symposium taking in place in Melbourne on Friday.

His comments come a few days after acting prime minister Sam Abal revealed that $250 million earmarked for community projects around PNG had “gone missing”.

Dr Webster also said communities affected by major resource projects have to become involved in discussions which affect them.
