The Bougainville Business Association yesterday agreed to support the proposal by the Chinese delegation to start up the first Economy Zone for North Bougainville.
The Bougainville Business Association after studying the Chinese team’s presentation said that this would indeed trigger economic development on Bougainville.
The presentation to develop a modern city on Bonus plantation was made after several consultations between the ABG and the China Chamber of Commerce.
The Proposal if approved will see the development of the first Bougainville city on North Bougainville.
The Association whilst agreeing with the principles highlighted that there needs to be further consultations between the ABG and the people of North Bougainville who would be affected by the development.
They also agreed to lead the Awareness Campaigns to promote the proposal throughout North Bougainville.
