NFA and PNG Customs signs MOA to boost Boarder Protection especially Fisheries Trade Minimize


National Fisheries Authority and PNG Customs signed Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) in December 2013 to boost boarder protection to curb illegal imports like canned tuna that evade boarder authorities and enter the country.  Mr Sylvester Pokajam, Managing Director of National Fisheries Authority said that this historical signing would pave the way forward for the duo government agencies to pursue its objectives.

Mr Ray Paul Customs Commissioner said that this MOA is a long overdue and now it would have a bigger impact on the boarder especially to deal with fisheries matters.  He said, working in partnership with NFA would ease a lot of workload. Mr Paul said joint operation would enforce security issues and solve some of socio-economic development problems in the country as a result of illegal trade that existed in the past. He further thanked NFA for funding local fisheries projects through Project Development Fund (PDF) Scheme.
