“Our Government is behind our Churches but want to see even greater partnership.”

The Prime Minister reiterated that Government and Church partnership is very important for the country.

“Church leaders work in challenging environment.

“The government is supporting a lot of church programs and will continue to support health and education services.”

The Prime Minister also urged the church to assist the government to take a strong role in addressing issues such as sorcery related violence, violence against women and girls, and drug and alcohol abuse in communities.

“Addressing these issues is not the work of the government only, but we must do this together.

“We all have the responsibility to address social issues in our communities.

The Prime Minister said the Government’s priority now is on infrastructure development and the Chimbu province will be getting a large part of Asian Development Bank (ADB) Funding.
