New Dawn FM News
The ABG President Chief DR.JOHN MOMIS last week told the visiting Australian High Commissioner to PNG, BRUCE DAVIES and his delegation plus the ABG Ministers, Members and the people of South Bougainville that ABG has its priorities as the date for the referendum nears.
Speaking at the Opening of the Double Classroom and a Teachers house at Buin Primary School, President MOMIS said certain things can wait after the referendum but not the preparation for the coming Referendum.
He said that Bougainville desperately needed funds to fast-tract outstanding issues to make sure all Bougainvilleans are ready and united to go for the vote in 2019.
President Momis said that the tactic that the National Government is playing to withhold funds entitled to Bougainville under the Bougainville Peace Agreement was not helping Bougainville at all.
He called on the people of Bougainville to remain united and not involve in issues that could divide the people during referendum vote next year.
President MOMIS said that UNITY was Bougainvilles most powerful bargaining power when negotiating the final status of Bougainville after referendum.

New Dawn FM News

The member for South Bougainville in the Papua New Guinea National Parliament and Deputy Opposition Leader, TIMOTHY MASIU wants Australia or another Pacific country to monitor the border between PNG and Solomon Islands in three areas of Bougainville.
The three areas are TASMAN Islands where Traditional border crossers from Tasman cross to Oton Java, SIROVAI in Central Bougainville where Central Bougainvilleans cross to TARO island and Gizo and at KANGU in Buin where the people of South Bougainville cross over to NILA, Shortland island and Mono island in the Solomon islands.
MR. MASIU said the Bougainville Peace Agreement forbids the Papua New Guinea Defence Force from coming to all the islands within Bougainville and must remain as it is.
He said because of the APEC meeting there is a need to monitor the movement of people within the border areas.
MR. MASIU said that they must start the Security operations on our borders quickly even before the APEC meeting is staged in November this year.
The Member for South Bougainville also mentioned this to the visiting Australian delegation in Buin last week.

The APEC Food Security Cooperation Forum (APEC FSCF) is working towards establishing a Food Safety Modernization Framework that looks at delivering safer food to consumers, both domestic and internationally imported food.

The APEC Food Security Cooperation Forum (APEC FSCF) is working towards establishing a Food Safety Modernization Framework that looks at delivering safer food to consumers, both domestic and internationally imported food.

Concerns over food safety in the Asia Pacific region have risen and spurred a high level collective mandate from APEC Leaders to improve safety standards and practices.

In 2007 after the formation of the APEC FSCF, a robust approach was sought to strengthening food safety standards using scientific risk-based approaches and without creating unnecessary impediments to trade.

The framework progresses the agreed goals of the FSCF thus is expected to provide guidance to APEC economies on enhancing or modernizing their food safety regulatory systems to ensure safe food for consumers and to facilitate trade.

The FSCF delegates during this Second Expert Meeting will further discuss challenges that may affect food safety from farm to table and is applicable to all foods available for sale in the domestic market of APEC economies whether it is produced domestically or imported.

While the primary focus of the framework is on food safety, it is recognized that national food safety regulatory systems will also need to protect the consumers from misrepresentation and fraud.
