Tetidu local level government in Manus province is focusing on economic development.

Speaking at Kawaliap Primary School during the launching of four agriculture projects recently, Tetidu LLG president, Peter Poiou said his LLG was focusing more on economic development so that people would work on their land to generate income.

The four farming projects were funded under the Manus district support improvement programme (DSIP), with a total funding of K155, 833.00.

A total 334 local farmers within the Tetidu LLG are benefiting from the projects.

The total costing of each project is: piggery- K29, 900, poultry-K53, 331.59, inland fisheries-K50, 000.35 and rice farming-K8,952.

“We want these 334 farmers to pilot the projects,” Poiou said.

“You must look after these projects so that they will sustain you in the long run.

“You must work your land.

“There is no time for politics.

“Let us work together to develop our LLG.”

Poiou thanked Minister for Inter-Government Relations and Manus Open MP Job Pomat for providing funding under his DSIP.
