“Maybe next year Manus will have a little bit more in allocation and will be at the top of the allocation scale, and Morobe maybe in the middle somewhere and Port Moresby maybe be the least at the bottom,” says Loujaya.

“It allows for catch up with a greater allocation of DSIP for them and it challenges districts like Lae and NCD to be able to think outside the box and create economic opportunity outside of the ten million allocations.”

As minister responsible for the welfare of the people, Mrs. Toni confidently said the deal is in the best interest of the Manus people.

She backed the Prime Minister in saying that this deal is a win-win situation for the country.
Similar arrangements are in the pipeline for the other 88 districts in the country.
