Rimbunan Hijau, the giant logging company in PNG, opened its K5 million service station depot at Vision City Shopping mall in Port Moresby today.

Executive director Nathaniel Ho says RH has been in the country for the past 20 years and such investments will help the people of PNG and create more job opportunities for them.

“With the influx of vehicles and traffic delays being experienced at the moment in the city, there is a need for more service stations to eradicate these problems. RH has seen the problem and has assessed how we will be tackling the issues,” he said.

He said RH will also be setting up other depots around the city and make life easier for the people.

Meanwhile, Ho has also announced that RH will be building a similar Vision City in Lae with the project starting early next year.

Other major towns they will be expanding to are Kokopo, Mt Hagen and Madang.
