PNG MP wants Chinese Investors to Fund Chocolate Factory

South Bougainville MP, Timothy Masiu is hoping that Chinese investors will fund a chocolate factory in the region.

Mr Masiu recently shown a delegation from Guangdong around the southern part of the autonomous island region.

He said along with making chocolate, they expressed an interest in fishing, hydro-electricity, solar power, building a harbour and manufacturing items like cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

Mr Masiu said making more of Bougainville's cocoa crop has long been a dream of his, and he wants Bougainvilleans to be able to export a finished product and not just the raw material.

Radio New Zealand reports Mr Masiu saying, he made it clear to the Chinese delegation that any deals wouldn't be signed until after the Bougainville referendum on independence from PNG, to be held from 12 October.
