It was a stirring visual looking from over the shoulder of the Governor of East Sepik , Hon Allan Bird on the Boram Airport tar mack today.
His dream and vision for Sepik was today being realized.
The towering figure stood poised, gazing in deep thought at the procession of the guard of honour for Prime Minister James Marape soon after the Falcon Jet landed.
Governor Bird has been a major protagonist for the “Agriculture Potential” of the East Sepik Basin and the greater Sepik region, not to mention Papua New Guinea as a whole.
Today K340 Million EU grant for East and West Sepik, which he had worked on tirelessly was finally Launched.
“Instead of loans, it was Allan Bird who opened up our eyes to the grants available to us…” Prime Minister recalled, as the former Finance Minister listening to Bird.
Today the East and West Sepik get an injection of desperately needed seed capital that will facilitate for the Agriculture Industries of Cocoa, Vanilla, rice, spice etc in the Sepik region to increase Agriculture % in the regional and national GDP in 5-10 years.
