For the first time after 27 years, Bougainville Copper Limited held its first directors’ meeting in Buka today (Wednesday, 3 August).
During the meeting the company also briefed members of the nine landowner associations of Panguna who were also present on their community engagement plans.
Chairman Robert Burns described the meeting as being very productive and further said that he welcomed the support given by the Autonomous Bougainville Government President Chief Dr John Momis and his Vice President Mr Raymond Masono.
“This is something of a historic moment for holding the meeting in Buka for the first time after 27 years and I also appreciate the strong level of support given by the landowners as we had the opportunity to talk with them,” Mr Burns said.
Many of the landowners present said they were very happy to be part of the meeting as they were able to get briefs from the executives.
