Kaim, thanks indeed for those commendable words of advice. I will personally see to it that this message from you is relayed to the MP's desk. I will also have him look in on the feasibility studies you did with the German company at the Wabag planning office for rural electification. I appreciate and highly commend your constructiveness for a better Lagaip-Porgera. The MP would be happy to hear from you.

The suggestions I have put forward to you to pass on to the member are things I have had always thought I could do if I were the member for Lagaip Porgera. Now, there can be only one member at any one time so instead of letting these visions live with me, I thought I'd rather share it with you for the development of our electorate.

One other suggestion I thought could work well for the district is to engage the educated/professionals from the district to help out in infrastructure developmental projects. We have many Doctors, Nurses, Agriculturlist, Engineers, Teachers, Acountants, Economist, Lawyers, Tradesmen and people of all works of life. I am sure anyone of these people if requested through the member's office for professional assistance would be quite happy to assist. I know of many of our boys and girls from the district who would be too happy to help out. Maybe the first thing is for a survey of the available skill level within the district. The identified skill can then be contacted to help out based on the projects planned by the district planning committee.

This is another valid point that deserves mentioning. Given the government funds available and insufficient market conditions we can do so little to sustain the cost of engaging professional Lagaip-Porgerans for the next 5 years. However, it's a good thing the government has increased rural development funding to K10 million for 2008 and I would expect this to continually rise so we can afford to engage their services and build other worthy infrastructures. State-of-the-art classrooms, hospitals, sealed roads and factories can never stand alone without the presence of highly qualified lecturers, doctors, engineers and agriculturalists running them. Intellectual and highly skilled manpower is needed to drive our electorate and province forward. Given the lack of adequate social incomes it could be an expensive exercise for the MP, provincial, and national government to annually budget for payrolls but we will attempt to analyse the socio-economic conditions and people's willingness-to-pay. The people should be prepared to pay their share of the costs of services. The government cannot afford to continually maintain such services. Hence we need to drive our policy strategically. If we can drive our agro-industrial policies home in line with the creation of other social and economic infrastructures, we can create visible incomes for our people at the end of 5 years so that they may in turn be able to afford higher costs of services. Agricultural growth through nucleus enterprise schemes, factories, and small agro-business capitalization is the key to the MP's strategy in beating poverty. However to reduce the costs, I am sure professional Lagaip-Porgerans would be willing to return and work if given the chance, regardless of the competitiveness of the wage level.
