Indonesia request for PNG Lae to supply cattle

INDONESIA has firmed up its request for Papua New Guinea specifically Lae, to supply 20,000 to 50,000 cattle when they host weeks National and International Sports event in 2020.

Papua Province will host this one week event where more than 70,000 sporting athletes and teams will participate. Because of Papua hosting, Governor for Papua Province Lukas Enembe has asked Lae, Morobe Province to supply 20,000 cattle for food in 2020 and another province will supply the remaining.

“But if Lae can give us the whole stock of 50,000 in 2020 than we do not need to ask our other suppliers in the province,” Mr Enembe said.

“In my last visit to PNG, Momase region, Lae to be specific, I made an undertaking that our government will purchase 20,000 cattle from Lae, to boost Lae economy and buy these cattle for our big sports event that we will be hosting in 2020. I said if Lae or Madang can supply the whole 50,000 cattle which will be eaten for a week then we don’t need to have our other Province provide, “he said.

“There will be more than 70,000 people participating, so we want to foster that business deal, and maybe right into the future for more prosperous economic and Trade business engagements, “Enembe said. Post courier/ONE PNG
