He said removing the culture of violence is critical to the social, economic, political and all aspect of development in PNG.
“We start from Port Moresby and change our culture nationwide,” Governor Parkop said.
He made this comment after the launching of the campaign, Sanap Wantaim (stand together), last week.
The campaign’s objective is for men and women to see each other as partners in making Port Moresby a safe city to live in.
Parkop said violence is an impediment to the development and personal wellbeing of individuals.
