THE Western Highlands Development Forum will be pushing for more students from the province to be educated in the United States when it stages its fourth annual gathering at the National Library tomorrow.
It will donate K20,000 to three aid posts in the province.
Chairman of the non-political think-tank Samson Komati said yesterday that it was because of the push for good education that US Ambassador Walter North and an ExxonMobil representative had been invited, together with Hagen MP and Petroleum and Energy Minister William Duma.
“Western Highlands has a lot of money,” Komati said.
“There are a lot of businesspeople who think that Australia is the only destination for their children’s education.”
“I’m bringing the US ambassador in specifically to tell him that we want Western Highlanders to send their kids to America because America has the best affordable education.”
Three rural communities will share K20,000 for electric power generators and medical items for their respective rural health centres.
They are Kuruk in Mul, Koibuga in Nebilyer and Tinsley in Baiyer- Lumusa.
