Christmas Greetings and 2011 in perspective (summary)

As 2011 draws to a close this blog post reflects on the activities of the year – an eventful and interesting year.

We awoke this morning to the news that the PNG Supreme Court has ruled that the O’Neil admininstration  took power illegally while longstanding prime minister Sir Michael Samore was incapacitated through illness and the country was in effect without government, and now the PNG government is again in a state of confusion, with armed police in Port Moresby and many organisations closed for fear of unrest. Developments over the next few days could be interesting… The Arawa Urban Council was looking forward to a budget of K15m for 2012 – but that was prepared by the O’Neil Admin and, I presume, is now not a legitimate budget! This is all unlikely to help improve  PNG’s ranking from right near the bottom of the international list of most corrupt countries!

Anyway please enjoy the good things we can report in our Annual Newsletter  and may your Christmas be a blessed time and 2012 an exciting and challenging year! As usual click on the highlighted text to cross over to the letter.Christmas Letter 2011
