In presenting a dummy cheque of K20, 000 to the show organisers on Tuesday 15th August 2023, Mrs Pilamp said people and culture plays an integral part in strengthening community and business relationships.

“BSP is a bank that promotes culture, people and small businesses and events that helps promote tourism while encouraging small businesses in the provinces to engage and expose their local products. We acknowledge that Mt Hagen, the Western Highlands Province, and the Highlands region are key contributors to PNG’s economy through the support of informal markets, farmers, fresh produce and SMEs and are happy to support the event,” Mrs Pilamp added.
