She said this yesterday when announcing that KwikBuilt has been awarded a major contract to build three major projects in Lae.
The three projects are a Correctional Service (CS) 20-bed medical facility for prisoners along with a 40-bed CS female dormitory with ablutions and a three-bedroom duplex for senior officers.
“It ties in with the vision that I have, especially for training for local youth, in the ward areas where the infrastructure will be going up,” Toni said.
“I’d also like to take this opportunity, not only for KwikBuilt, to say that I’m looking out for business houses in Lae to partner with me in various other projects as well.”
She said these projects included the K5 million biometric registration rollout and road sealing in the Bumayong, Tent City and University of Technology areas.
Toni said partnerships like the one she had built with KwikBuilt was the way to go if Lae was to change from the way it had been heading for the last 37 years.
“Lae is an industrial city, but you need to strengthen these partnerships, to make Lae what it’s going to be,” she said.
“I need to partner with you by way of memorandums of agreement.” The National/Image credit: Malum Nalu
