MP Isabel Peta says her region is starting to thrive as it becomes more integrated into the rest of the Papua New Guinea autonomous region.

Ms Peta said:

“Our community policing is now very strong in South Bougainville and it is really helping the youth in that region to get up and do something good within the communities.

“The people of South Bougainville and not only South Bougainville other parts of Bougainville also that are developing the town we have got a lot of businesses up and running.
