Logging Project in Bouganville to Start Next Month
The Tonolei logging project in South Bougainville is set to start next month.
This was disclosed by local MP Timothy Masiu, the Communication and Information Technology Minister, who said that resource developer KKCL based in East New Briain would land its equipment and machinery next month.
He also thanked the Tonolei Development Corporation (TDC) landowner company for getting the project going, since this has been delayed for two years to give time for the landowners to work on social mapping exercises and register incorporated land groups. He also asked for support from the Autonomous Bougainville Government.
Masiu also expressed his appreciation to TDC Chairman John Kebau for showing accountability and transparency by giving an acquittal report. He said that his DDA would resume to support and work with the TDC.
