Polye welcomes Engineered Wood project

PORT MORESBY:Science, research, technology and innovation are catalyst for economic development and growth, said the Opposition Leader Don Pomb Polye.

Mr Polye said he welcomed a three-year partnership Australian Centre for International Agriculture Research reached with PNG Forestry Authority and other players in the industry for an engineered wood project.
He said the alternative government would like to more of such alliance in other areas as well.
“We support science, research, technology and innovation as they are catalyst for economic growth and development.
“In this way, we can create a knowledge-based economy,” said Mr Polye when commenting on this project.
He said the Opposition believed in doing away with tradition way of doing things, adding when they are in government, they will make long-term investments in science and technology.
“We would like to see similar partnerships in agriculture, fisheries, climate change and crops among others.
“We should also adequately resource National Agriculture and Research Institute, National Research Institute, Medical Research Institute and other institutions to create a knowledge-based economy,” said a determined Polye.
He has called on the Prime Minister Peter O’Neill not to overlook this promising industry with his ‘populist education and health policies.’
Polye said the government should focus its foreign policies on research, science and technology so that the country has a huge potential to tap into.
