Enga Province needs the development infrastructure projects to attain a widely spread increase in wellbeing of all engans. Projects like the kandep wheat project, wabag water supply project and hagen-porgera highway project have been supported well by the people thus, people enjoy their benefits equally.
The issue raised by the departmental secretary for national planning and monitoring is true in other parts of the part and would be existing in smaller scale in enga. it is better for the entire engan population that such issues be not practised by engans; it belittles the engans in all perspectives and thus, projects are thwarted-missing the valuable services.
any common issues between the project and people be solved amiably without any stop to projects.

Lelang calls for aid workers’ safety
By SAMSON KENDEMAN
NATIONAL Planning and Monitoring Secretary Joseph Lelang has said that the safety of Japanese aid workers in PNG should be protected to ensure smooth implementation of their activities to enable their contribution to be effective.
Mr Lelang said this in light of Japanese personnel, who were engaged in the implementation of certain projects over the past few years, had encountered problems with criminal elements.
He said aid project personnel would not come to PNG to implement projects if criminals continued to threaten them.
Mr Lelang was speaking during his department’s policy consultation meeting between the governments of PNG and Japan in Port Moresby yesterday.
“Our Government will ensure that police and other law enforcement agencies are informed in advance to protect the lives of the aid personnel,” he said.
Mr Lelang thanked the delegates led by first secretary of the Embassy of Japan Takeshi Fujimura for their continued efforts and commitment in contributing to the development of PNG so that the rural majority could benefit.
The meeting was the sixth since 2003 where vital information was exchanged between the two countries.
The meeting highlighted PNG’s development issues, its economic situation, Japanese development assistance policy and priority areas.
Mr Fujimura said the Embassy of Japan hoped that through the consultation meeting, it would further assist in the economic development of PNG and the bilateral relationships between them would be strengthened.
He said the government of Japan would continue to support and provide assistance to the efforts of the PNG Government to develop the country and its people.

this is a sample of the commentary letter sent to the The National Newspaper for tomrrow's paper.
if such issues relating to projects appear, the enga provincial government and enga provincial administration should be instituted administrative structures to solve them. i mean that epg and epa should always have a section taking care of such problems.
A coordinated Approach to Supporting Development Projects in Papua New Guinea
I concur with the appeal of the Departmental Secretary (Messer Joseph Lelang) for Department of National Planning and Monitoring that the people of the Independent State of Papua New Guinea regarding personnel safety for aid workers, which appeared on your paper, under the title: ‘Lelang calls for aid workers’ safety’, on Friday, 8 August 2008.
Over time, many essential development projects have been funded and/or implemented by many countries, domestic and international institutions, citizens and overseas individual friends. These development projects serve the prime objective to ameliorate the social, economic and political wellbeing of the entire population which then, contribute to giving a re-newed sovereign image of the Independent State of Papua New Guinea.
It would be rather unacceptable and diplomatically incorrect, in all perspectives, for some peoples of the Independent State of Papua New Guinea to become egotistical in hindering the implementation of such projects temporary or permanently by mainly imposing threats deliberately to the personnel security and safety of domestic and overseas aid workers.
This incorrect perception and other created structures have been chronic though little efforts have been exhibited to eliminate them through instituted administrative structures.
Among many existing efforts, it would be optimal to increase awareness of the objectives of the development projects to the peoples of the project areas over time and facilitating a mechanism for settlement of such opinionated conflicts of interests of the people by the Independent State of Papua New Guinea through its public service; with much involvement from the Department of National Planning and Monitoring.
