PNG boosts skilled manpower with graduation of Kane

Papua New Guinea has further boosted its manpower with the graduation of Julius Kane with a masters degree majoring in policy development at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand.
Kane also did a minor in strategic management.

He graduated on Thursday, December 13, in the presence of family members who travelled to New Zealand for the big day.

He was a senior officer with Department of Treasury before embarking on further studies.
 It was a two year programme in 2011/2012, where Kane competitively won an Open Category South Pacific Scholarship in 2010 funded by the New Zealand Government, administered by NZAID.
 “This is a great boost as far as human resources training and development is concerned, which is a fundamental development goal for the country to prosper in the 21st Century,” Kane said.
“I am looking forward to contribute meaningfully in the economy, in whatever employment I am engaged in, to make a difference.
“I challenge Papua New Guineans to change their attitude for the better, as I see this as the greatest stumbling block towards progress and development in PNG if we are to make a difference and be recognised as a strong regional leader within Melanesia and the wider Pacific Island nations.”
Kane further holds a bachelor of business in human resources management from Charles Sturt University in New South Wales, Australia; a bachelor of arts in public administration and political science from University of PNG; and a diploma in theology from St Fidelis College Minor Seminary in Madang.
Being a strong Christian, he thanked Jesus, NZAID as the chief financier, and Southern Highlands Governor William Powi and Imbongu MP and Minister for Works and Implementation Francis Awesa for their co-financing.
“However, equal thanks goes to my family members, tribe, friends and colleagues for making my training possible,” Kane said
