The white expats still control too much of business community?

White expats still control too much of the business community in PNG. Some are qualified but many are not qualified to hold the jobs they are holding and are paid a fortune. There are many long term white bosses in PNG who wouldn't get the same job in Australia but in PNG they are kept in the job making fat salaries and fattening their bank accounts without doing anything to transfer knowledge or skills to Papua New Guineans or development PNG capacity. They are usually the same ones who are talking down and rubbishing Papua New Guineans and PNG.
Australian taxi drivers and clerks come to PNG and they become senior managers with million kina apartments and expensive cars but when they return to Australia they go back to driving trucks, and opening doors.
Why do we allow these people in and let them keep these big jobs? Its a joke. A few of these long term expats have questionable sexual activitities that are banned or frowned upon in Australia like pedophilea but in PNG we turn a blind eye to them. Why?
30 years on why are we still letting these people remain in PNG?
