BREAKFAST MEETING

The Chamber had its last breakfast meeting on Friday 30 July where
we had the British High Commissioner addressing the issue of the
impact HIV/AIDS would have on the business community based on his
experiences in Africa. A copy of his notes summarised in the form
of a media release is attached and can also be viewed on our
website **www.pomcci.org.pg* <http://www.pomcci.org.pg>*. We hope
to have a sound file of the complete address also available on the
website soon. *Thanks to FM 100 for broadcasting the breakfast. * *

*The High Commissioner has provided us with a suggestion "guideline"
to hopefully form the basis of a "Charter of Principles" to assist
all employers. A copy of this is also attached & we encourage wide
discussions on this & welcome comments from members. *

*Our next breakfast meeting will be on Friday August 27 at the
Holiday Inn. The Chief Ombudsman has agreed to speak to members
and guests. Invitations have been sent out. Members are reminded
that the Chamber has to book seats in advance for these breakfast
meetings and has to pay for an increasing number of no-shows from
members who have confirmed they will attend. An invoice is normally
sent to those members who do not cancel reservations at least 48
hours prior. Many of these invoices remain outstanding and
responsible members are asked to settle these immediately as this is
a waste to the Chamber i.e. your, funds. We merely ask that you do
the right thing.*

committees please forward your Resumes to the Chamber. The
alternate member to the NAC Legal Committee is Mr Paul Nindipa.*

*We have also been invited to nominate a candidate representing the
private sector to the NCD Provincial Youth Council. The

this serious consideration. Further details can be obtained from
the Chamber office. *

ST JOHN'S AMBULANCE SERVICE

*The Chamber was happy to coordinate the purchase of two Toyota
Troop Carrier ambulances recently decommissioned in Northern
Queensland from the Queensland Emergency Services, for K25,000. The
ambulances came full of emergency equipment, including 12
defibrillators to be distributed to ambulances throughout the
country. The vehicles will bear the logo of the Chamber, as well as
the Rotary logo to recognize the K10,000.00 contribution from the
Rotary Clubs of Boroko and Port Moresby. The city now has a fleet
of five ambulances to service a population of over 3000,000
residents. All members can feel justifiably proud of their
involvement in this project.***

THE PIPES ARE CALLING

*President recently held discussions with the new Commanding Officer
of First Royal Pacific Island Regiment at Taurama Barracks, Lt Col
Raymond Numa on a wide range of issues. The Commander has several
projects which he feels may be of interest to the business
community. One of these is the reformation of the 1RPIR Pipes and
Drum Band. There is already some support from the donor community
and he asks if anyone would be interested in helping to purchase the six additional sets of bagpipes the band needs. The band has a
long and proud tradition and I am sure there are more than just us
Scots out there who would love to hear the skirl of the pipes once
more. If you are interested you can contact President on
**pomcci@global.net.pg* <mailto:pomcci@global.net.pg>* or Lt Col
Numa directly on 3259493 or **raynuma@yahoo.com.au*
<mailto:raynuma@yahoo.com.au>*. *

NCDC NEWS

POMCCI has lobbied for many years for rehabilitation of the Wharf
Road and welcomes the long overdue work which has started on Stanley
Esplanade. The road platform will be reinforced concrete and the
work was tendered and awarded to Global Construction for approx
K4.3m. There will be considerable disruption of traffic in the
area, and some of that will inevitably impact on Champion Parade. This is unavoidable and residents and businesses are asked to
cooperate to ensure traffic flows are not unduly hindered. **

* *
Additional work has been done on the Konedobu end of Stanley
Esplanade from the AHC to Lawes Road and with appropriate line
marking it is hoped traffic hazards in this area will disappear and the faster movement of traffic will reduce the increasing lawlessness in this area. NCDC has a program of pothole sealing underway in several areas and this is welcomed. International Constructions/MJ Electrical have been awarded a K350,000 contract to repair the streetlights in the city and already we can see some improvements along the Freeway.**


The Commission at its last meeting resolved not to renew the contract of the City Manager, Bernard Kipit, which expires in October 2004. Dr Karuraratne will continue as Acting City Manager while the position is advertised. The process of selection will be outsourced to the large recruiting firms and expressions of interest are currently being sought for the work. The successful tenderer will provide the Full Commission with a shortlist of candidates for final selection.

The Commission has also agreed to seek written expressions of interest from parties interested in leasing the facilities of the NCD Dog Pound and the Taurama Leisure Centre. Advertisements should be in the newspapers shortly.

Sir Mekere Morauta has been confirmed as Chairman of theCommission. Former Chairman, Michael Malabag, is now Chairman of the Physical Planning Board and POMCCI President has been confirmed as Chairman of the Building Board.
