The James Marape 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 the foundation of transparent management practice. In this day and age of cyber information transaction, I commend my Department for establishing this information hub where what we do in Finance can be exposed for public scrutiny.
Department of Finance is the Custodian of Public Finance Management Act. We are the path to proper adherence to best practices in matter of Public Finance. The matters that relate to accountable implementation of National budgets, there can be no better place than this website for Public to know what we at Finance are up to.
Let us at Finance use this site to maintain contact with the tax paying public on matters of Financial Management we undertake now and hence forth.
Hon Charles Abel, MP
Minister for Finance
