Social & Economic Development

The Usino-Bundi and Raicoast areas where the Project is located are among the least developed in Madang Province where basic government services have been neglected for decades. Our commitments to assist the local community in social and economic development are documented in the Ramu MOA.

Since assuming the role of the Manager in 2005, we have been systematically implementing the Social and Economic Development Plan (SEDP) by stages, in order to improve the infrastructures, medical and education facilities urgently needed by local communities . By the end of June 2011, we have substantially completed all programs during the construction phase under SEDP.

Where possible and practical, we also go beyond our MOA commitments and assist in local agriculture development, community road construction, sharing project infrastructures with the public, and many other community development activities.
