The government is rushing major new mines without properly understanding the costs and benefits of an export led economy or the possible alternatives.
Community advocacy group ACT NOW! wants the PNG government to commission a proper study of the full costs and benefits of existing mines and other natural resource industries before committing to continue along the same development path.
