BUKA - The Eivo Torau Constituency in Central Bougainville has conducted six reconciliation ceremonies to signify its readiness to progress economic development for its people and the rest of Bougainville.

The six ceremonies were to resolve grievances and issues between parties over conflicts that occurred during the Bougainville Crisis.

They were a prelude to the redevelopment of the now defunct Manetai Limestone Project that existed pre-crisis.

Member for Eivo-Torau, Lawrence Sirapui, said his people are ready to embrace development.

Mr Sirapui said the constituency is abundant with natural resources and he extended an invitation to the Bougainville government to look at developing the constituencies’ resources.

He said his people also want to show other areas that they are contributing to Bougainville’s journey to independence.
