PM aims to deliver 70pc of electricity in five years



Prime Minister James Marape says his Government aims to deliver electricity to 70 per cent of the country by 2025.


He said this during the launch of National Energy Policy 2017 to 2027 in Port Moresby.


“The National Electrification Roll Out Plan aims to deliver electricity to 70 per cent of our people and country by 2030 and our Vision 2050 is electricity for all by 2050. My government aims to deliver electricity to 70 per cent of our country by 2025,” Marape said.


“Electricity is a key enabler for economic and human development. And we have started that work already without waiting on anyone.


“Without cheap and reliable electricity, our country will not progress.


“My Government aims to deliver electricity to 70 per cent of our people by 2025, when our nation celebrates 50 years of independence,” he said.


“I envisage a national and regional power grid that overlays with our major highways and feeder power lines that runs with our provincial and district roads that exist and the new ones we are building.”
