Returning Minister for Forests Hon. Solan Mirisim has described 2022 as a challenging year with the forthcoming general elections but has stressed the need for staff to work together for successful outcomes.
Thanking outgoing Forest Minister Hon. Walter Schnaubelt when addressing staff at the Papua New Guinea Forest Authority (PNGFA) headquarters in Port Moresby on January 17th 2022, Minister Mirisim said: “I thank the outgoing Minister Hon. Walter Schnaubelt who has done a lot from where I left. I will continue where he left and also look at policy directions that were started but didn’t eventuate. But everything will fall into place when the directors and staff work together. The Managing Director, Board Chair and I cannot achieve on our own. All of you work with us to achieve policy directions.”
