We spent nearly 5 years in Papua/New Guinea during the 60s. The economy at that time was viable and thriving. After Independence in 1975 there was upheaval and adjustment as one would expect. However things seem to settle under the leadership of Michael Somare - Australia leaving a good system of Government. PNG has an abundance of natural wealth - but this has been exploited and mismanaged for years now. It would seem that these people need genuine help to market their produce adequately, without the interference of Big Business from outside looking for a quick profit. Thanks Cal.
