New forestry projects exporting logs despite supposed govt ban

November 7, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

The government’s policy banning any new log export projects in PNG is being completely disregarded, even if the government were ever serious about it.

These photos are from the Marshall Lagoon where the logs from the Lako Imila project are waiting to be shipped.  This operation started AFTER the supposed ‘policy banning log exports in favor of downstream processing’ came into effect…

    Logging is a multiple million dollar industry so all those talks of round log export bann are just rubbish, when Somare the Afther is there with Peter Oneil and RH is laughing away at us. RH came into PNG with nothing and ripped and rapped our forests and made millions and now is going knot print medi! Shopping complex and real estate industry and into hoteliering and the limit is the sky so long as its political boys are there in Govt.

    Forget about any policy put out by Govt to stop logging, it’s just tok tok nating…sorry PNG we are lost and we are bling to see that we are being cheated right now…
