Smile Kwila To Harvest - Interested Loggers Can Obtain more information from me

There is a vast forest full of Kwila (hardwood) to be harvested in the Madang Province of Papua New Guinea.

I am placing this message to attract any investors that can offer good money for those logs. If any logging company either within or outside PNG is interested then it can contact me for more information.

You can request for more information by contacting me through this email address; sckombi325@yahoo.com

The files are too large to be placed on this website so I will send them to whoever requests for them.

Cheers

Sukmini Kombi

forest full of Kwila you say....wantoks isn't it bad enough that all our minerals and non-renewable resources are being mined and exported for close to nothing, have we not been exploited enough??!!

what a shame, instead of protecting our natural environment your trying to sell us out! the financial gains that these logging companies will give you is only short-term!! You need to look at the big picture... our future generations are dependent on the conservation of our land and natural resources.

WE ONLY HAVE 1 MOTHER EARTH lets join hands in PROTECTING IT!!!!!

I think the people have the right to use their natural resources to improve their living standards in their villages.

All they have to do is secure a good investor where they can work together to harvest their forest and the investor should a long term plan to rehabilitate the forest so that future generation can enjoy the same privilege too.


Cheers,

Bloom

Dear Bloom,

I placed this advertisment on behalf of the landowners and their representative who needed assistance from me. I am working at Lake Kutubu, so I will let the concern parties know about your willingness to assist them when I go out on field break.

I am certain that I will get a good response from them to do business with your assistance.

Let us continue to work together for the benefit of the unfortunate landowners who need some kind of assistance from people like you and me.

Cheers
Sukmini Kombi

your point is valid!...however, i must remind you that logging in PNG has and continues to have a negative social impact.unfortunately, it is failing to contribute to the long-term economic success of most PNGeans.

while logging in Papua New Guinea is bringing short-term cash incomes to local resource owners, these are quickly dissipated and, in general, have not delivered lasting, long-term benefits to the community, such as permanent infrastructure and other services.


furthermore, employment and other ‘spin-off' benefits are usually taken by outside workers. salaries and working conditions are generally very poor and have been officially described in one report as 'modern day slavery.

while our government and its regulatory institutions have all the necessary policies, laws and regulations to ensure that sustainable timber production can be achieved, these laws are not being enforced by the foreign and domestic timber companies.

regrettably, it has been well documented that the industry is allowed to ignore PNG laws and, in fact, gains preferential treatment in many cases, while the rural poor are left to suffer the social and environmental consequences of an industry that operates largely outside the regulatory system.

essentially what it comes down to is "Corruption"! this has a devastating effect on the living standards in the area as well as the long-term benefits for landowners.

Guys,

Instead of debating over this issue, why don't you offer some useful suggestions that I can bring them up to the concern parties for consideration. Debating over the issue will not help us find a solution.

Please offer your pros and cons for the poor landowners to analyze the likely negative impacts and the benefits that the investment will bring to them.

Cheers
Sukmini Kombi
