The ABG Minister for Primary Industry, NICHOLAS DARKU says Bougainville can still survive without mine.

He made these remarks at the closing ceremony of the first successful Bougainville land summit in Arawa last night.
MR. DARKU said that Bougainville’s soil is fertile and this can sustain the economy of the region.

He said that his division was working on a proposal to encourage all the THIRTY- FOUR THOUSAND cocoa farmers to work on just ONE HECTRE blocks instead of having 20 to 30 HECTRES.

The Minister said that with proper management of just ONE HECTRE the farmers can produce more cocoa.
He said that currently the farmers are unable to manage big plantations thus getting little for their work.
