I think it would be utter madness for the Enga government to sell off land now or in the future, even leasing it for 99 years, which is a policy in POM is not beneficial in the long term.

Land is everything, without land people have nothing, one become displaced and landless. Selling land now, makes future generations landless with no prospect of ever getting the land back.

With the threat of rising oceans, global warming, and an over populated world, land and water resources will be a countries greatest asset in the future.

Development of Enga is beneficial, especially in the hospitality industry, but why can't the Enga government
create a industry that promotes it's own tourism?

Mate, if the Enga government is adamant on outright selling of the land then I would vigorously oppose it just like all other Engan landowners.

However, I am hoping that we can come up with an arrangement that will be suitable for all parties; the landowners, developers and the provincial government.

I think the land registration concept that is currently being proposed is a good one. Here the landowners will register their land under the governments system and can use their land to do business with the developers. The developers will sign an agrement with the landowners to operate/rent their land for certain amount of years and as soon as the due date arrive they can sell their business to the landowners or whatever they want to under the agreement.

In this way all parties will benefit and there will be less problems.

Not too sure if registering of customary land is the best way to go, some more reading on the issue at:
