THE Western province assembly has underscored the importance of security in the welfare of the province and its economy.
In last week’s sine die motion, MPA for ward 3 Isaac Tatapu said security must prevail before governance can be effective and efficient.
He highlighted the main concern – the border security issue with PNG.
The border with PNG is a volatile hotspot which has contributed to the insecurity felt throughout the province.
He believes that the national governments of both countries can do more to address the issue.
“The vibrancy of our economic stability is wholely dependent on a secure and accountable environment, to enable the populace, business, and investors to move freely and without fear of being harassed or intimidated.
“Confidence must prevail in all sectors and specters of life.”
