I feel that my original post has descended into a scrabble game for inventing and defining reasons for holding onto traditional land. My post intended to elicit response to the question as to whether foreigners can invest in Enga. I don't want to buy traditional land. Our group merely wants to invest some of our excess funds and to try to help PNG villagers economically. We don't want your land! We just feel that Enga has enormous potential and we can help it along the way. And in the meanwhile help ourselves with long term investment.

Of course you can invest in Enga....but first, if you need some generic advice from Engans on this forum you should disclose the nature of your investment. What kind of business are you interested in committing your funds to? etc..

Whether foreigners can invest in Enga?
One doesn't need a MBA to know whether it's possible for anyone (including foreigners) to invest in Enga and other parts of PNG.

Sir, you left question open handed and the responses given were understandable.

What is that novel investment idea that, you don't want to disclose?

In Enga or anywhere in PNG for that matter, "LAND IS LIFE".
We don't need money to live though it comes in handy in a number of ways.

Your original post ask the question "Can anyone buy a part of Enga and if the government is selling shares and what the price is?", to me that was a specific question for wanting to "buy land".

As far as my replies to your original post, they where nothing to do with inventing reasons for holding onto traditional land, they are based on facts that have been well researched by Aidwatch, a non profit activist organization that monitors and campaigns on behalf of various overseas countries.

Spot on. The days of ignorance is over.

Your postings were spot on too. Sustainable development with majority local ownership ought to be the order of the day.

I represent four business people from three different countries. We wish to participate in a tourism venture that exploits the Enganess of Enga. We would like to invite suitable persons to guide us and to join with us in opening Enga to a global tourism venture, something akin to reality television.

I find your intentions well meaning and would like to provide a few hints. Many in this forum could provide you invaluable information on how you can go about collecting the relevant aspects of your proposal. I suggest that you contact the Enga Provincial Tourism office. This office is committed to the development of tourism in Enga. The contact person in the Enga Provincial Government in relation to tourism matters is Margaret Potane.

Hope that helps and thank you for choosing Enga for investment. You will not regret having chosen Enga.

Tomape, Sikita

I am wary of fine sounding investments that allows thoughtless greed and an economic sysytem that takes from those with little and gives it to those with abundance.

What little we have that sustains life (and for generations quite adequately) should NEVER be traded easily for "SOME PROMISE" of a better life that never materialises (as is commonly known in PNG.
