Think about this when we hear again and again that the PMIZ is an inevitability, and that inviting ten foreign-owned canneries, their workers, their ships, and their demands for infrastructure, to come live in a piece of the Rempi land just north of Madang town.
In whose interest is this?
What really are the costs/benefits of this scheme?
We hear that this accomodation will allow PNG to harvest more of the proceeds from our tuna industry. But what kind of jobs are expected to be produced? How many at a living wage?
How many bonuses to MPs and Industry 1%?
Will it cost Madang our entire near shore fisheries?
Will it cost us our biodiversity?
Will it cost us more dolphina and whales?
