What facilities paid for by the oil and mining projects are some of the best in the country once the oil and mining projects disappeared?

You people are arguing theoretically. The point has already been made that you need to get down on the ground and see what very very little result in the project areas has grown out of literally billions of kina of removed resources.

It is obscene that you would argue these issues without having seen for yourself how little life has changed.

Countryside argues that we learn from each project. We haven't learnt much. The new resource development projects have future generation funds, unlike the old ones. The Kutubu oil project future generations fund was stolen by Hami Yawari and the money is almost certainly now gone or personally pocketed.

Everyone in DPE knew that and they just shook their heads.

Where is the progress in that? Look at all the chaos surrounding the disbursement of project monies with the LNG project.

Where is the evidence that we've learnt much at all from our past mistakes?
