Response to How do we grow?
Our imported rice bill alone comes to severa hundred million kina a year. We all make excuse on why its ok for us to buy some foreign products or from foreign owned biz and look what it adds up to. Theres a very good reason why we dont grow rice-its too labour intensive. The only solution to that is machines. But not economic to use machines unless you have heaps of land. Cant have that in PNG unless you take away customary land somehow. That last step makes people suffer so lets eat something besides rice thats grown in png
