"ALERT" World Bank Planning on Drafting New Laws for PNG.
Normal process would dictate that should Parliament decide Special Economic Zones are a good idea then it would be the job of Papua New Guinea’s public service to draft a policy and subsequent legislation.
But the World Bank clearly has no time for such niceties and is happy to run a bulldozer through notions of independence and National sovereignty in its pursuit of the economic interests of the transnational corporations.
Those corporations, of course, want duty free access to PNG resources and to process and add value to our raw materials without bothering with domestic niceties like minimum wages and health and safety laws – and they certainly don’t want to be bothered with paying any taxes.
