Government aims to improve housing
Prime Minister, James Marape, wants to see all employed Papua New Guineans to have a roof over their heads and a place to call home.
In his recent visit to the National Housing Corporation head office in Tokarara, Mr Marape told staff of his government’s aim, to make NHC and the National Housing Estate , the biggest real estate in the country.
“Ten years from now, NHC must be the answer to all housing issues for all employed citizens of this country". Mr Marape said.
“Firstly, my visit is to motivate the NHC staff to lift their performances and secondly to set key targets for NHC to be the answer to all the housing issues in this great country.
“The National Housing Corporation is a very important organization that has been decaying and eroding in its performance over a long period of time and we will now detach from undue political influences that has really derailed this organization from living up to its core intentions of how this organization should function.
“There will be no political influence in NHC but we expect this organization to be the best performing institution in this country,” he said.
Mr Marape further encouraged the NHC staff to think out of the box and do the right thing for the country.
