The O’Neill-Dion Government is committed to the development of Papua New Guinea and to the improvement of services for all its people. Information is a critical resource for the 21st Century. It is important for the Government to spell out its plans so that everyone can see what it is doing, and for the people to engage with Government. The Department of Finance has an important role to play in ensuring the Government’s goals are met, and I commend the Department for developing this new website to communicate directly to the people of Papua New Guinea on its activities.
I welcome all to the new website of the Finance Department Information dissemination and Public availability is on webcation of transparent management practice.
