Papua New Guinea keen to recruit Bangladeshi worker

Unb, Dhaka

The visiting Labour and Industry Minister of Papua New Guinea, Mark Maipakai, has shown interest to recruit a large number of Bangladeshi workers.

Maipakai, who led a seven-member delegation, met with acting secretary of Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment Dr Jaffar Ahmed yesterday and made an informal proposal to recruit Bangladeshi workers for Papua New Guinea’s infrastructure and gas sectors.

Emerging from the meeting, Dr Jaffar told that Maipakai said they would propose formally soon after forming a joint company comprising of the government of Papua NewGuinea (PNG) and the Bangladeshi community in Papua New Guinea to recruit Bangladesh labourers.

Maipakai said huge manpower is needed for the infrastructure and gas sectors of Papua New Guinea.

Dr Jaffar said Bangladesh would set up six more labour wings in its missions in Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Sudan, Italy and Japan.This will raise the number of Bangladesh’s labour wings to 19 abroad.

At present, only about 500 Bangladeshis work in Papua New Guinea, whereas over 10 lakh Chinese, three lakh Sri Lankans and two lakh Indians work there. The population of Papua New Guinea is only six million

  1. As if there are not enough unemployed people in PNG for low skilled labour work?

    Are these Bangladeshis going to do some basic English literacy test so they can at least communicate with PNG and other expatriate workers? If not this could be a huge OHS concern in a construction site.

    What wage structure are they going to paid on?, expatriate wages for low skilled labour or cheaper then what a PNG person would be paid?

    PNG population at last estimates is close to 6 million. I am sure over1 million of those would be between 18 and 40 and willing to work on in low skilled labour jobs.

    How can PNG people be spectators in there own country watching outsiders come and do the jobs they are willing and capable to do?

  2. If Mark Maipakai (minister) concludes this arrangement to recruit Bengali workers, I think he must be insane. He is going out of his head. This report is completely outrage and slap in the face for the 90% Papua New Guineans, who are unemployed or underemployed, walking in the streets every day searching and hoping for a paid job.

    Mark Maipakai should walk the streets of Port Moresby, Lae and other towns in PNG to see for himself the number of people who are willing to work but yet there is limited provision of employment in the job market.

    I am stunned to read this article. Did the minister really conduct his job market analysis of PNG prior going out? Does this mean that the PNG jobseekers (90%) have a job in the LNG project and still there is a need for more recruitment therefore the minister has to look for offshore workers like Bengalis?

    Many PNGeans, particularly the unemployed and underemployed are eyeing on the LNG project for employment opportunities. Can these people continue to be life-time jobseekers?

    Social problems in the cities and towns can be resolved by engaging the unskilled worker on the streets. Common sense shall prevail. It is obvious why Mark Maikapai is looking for Bengalis. It is for money and self gain not for the economic benefit of PNG or to resolve any economic problem.

    1. Dear Mr Kaks Miru

      I have read your article not so good regarding bagladeshi workers.Actually you dont know about Bangladeshi workers.I worked before Saudi arabia.There are two & half millions Bangladeshi workers working with proud.They have been making saudi economic development in petro chemical plant, refineries, gas plant & many more government & non government construction projects.They are hard workers,Friendly, Brave & Brave hearted, intelligent ( quickly they learn the works for unskilled workers).Many more petrochemical projects , i had seen bangladeshi workers work hard than any others nationalities as well as they are willing work overtime where as other nationalities were not interested.Bangladeshi Engineers also same.I feel proud for my Bangladeshi peoples.They can develop many more BIG BIG projects.

      Yes ,,,of course,,,, We are the freedom fighter nations.We are the only one nations whose Sacrifice their blood & life for Bengali language against Pakistan.Our army are working United nations peace keeping missions in africa & entire world.I feel proud for my peoples.

      Mr. Mark Maipakai has took a great judgment to recruit Bangladeshi workers.

      At last you will be understood why Mr Mark Maipakai come here in bangladesh.

      1 millions chinese, 300000 srilankan, 250000 indian , may be 6000 bangladeshi workers are working there.

    1. dear sir i wish to come png for better job and now i am a manager of land division of bashundharagroup of companies now i desided to come png for my qualification and work experiences so will you help me and give good suggestion i will very pleased to you

  4. Mr Golam,
    Sir PNG people believe that in the best interests of PNG Bangladesh Manpower(BM) should only be considered as follows.

    1. For every 4 BM 4 PNGEANS would be employeed.
    2. All BM would be paid equviliant to their Bangaldesh wage as if working in Bangaldesh.
    3 Board of food and housing would be contributed as lure of this oppurtunity to work in PNG.
    Spouces would not be considered entry, work permits would be no longer than 3 months.

  5. I become so enraged easily by such ill-advised ministers. I was lucky to travel to Kikori and I can tell the whole world that Mark Maipakai’s electorate in Kikori is the least developed, the name “Kikori” is big & familiar but the place is like my Marawaka village. It’s not fit for a district or town.

    It is the entrance into the PNG LNG project and compared to Tari/Kutubu it is no way near. The people are struggling up and down the river system by wooden paddled canoes to look for jobs in the LNG project. WTF!!!!

    Mark Maipakai can go to HELL!!!

  6. Dont this sub-humans who over night become members of a very “elite” class of beings who once they have reached that devils house become unreachable overnight.They turn into evil spirits but they still retain their names; and they gain heaps of weight.And after a couple of years they turn back into humans and come out to their electrates to be elected back into that devils house.
    Maybe we the real humans who elected them into the devils house are the problem.We do not seem to learn from previous sub-humans who have done the same or similar life style,we keep on putting them there!!!!

    We do have ourselves to blame.Do you hold them in high regard even though you know he has been living it up while you waited for that election promise he made four or five years ago.When he comes along,you go”YES MINISTER,NO MINISTER.Blame yourself,you put him there

      With respect, PNG is not on the market for unskilled labourers from elsewhere. That quota is all taken including a good proportion of our semi skilled requirements.

There have lots of demand for skill workers so if any company have skill shortage please contact me on this number+ 91-9855285505. Basically their has no demand for labor as far I have seen & the workers have to have a minimum English skill.

  13. Abdul, PNG does not need unskilled workers.
    How ever semi skilled willing to be paid their Bangladesh wage with food and board may be appropiate for the people of PNG.
    Of course the workers skill and attitude would have to be fully tested.

    1. Sir,

    thanks & regards,

  15. I would like to send so many agricultural labour in PNG also construction labour in PNG. Already I am supplying in Malyasia. Thanks .Please send your demand. Best regards, Rafiqul Islam

  16. Dear Judy, David et al,

    I think that the above emails from Bangladeshi’s and companies is a sure sign of a misplaced, misinformed public about the value (if any) of Maipakai’s mission to Bangladesh.

    Already the management of such a recruitment campaign is already looking so ad hoc and so unmanagable before the ink dries!

    I think what Maipakai and his advisers (if any) should have done is look at best practice of foreign labour. Furthermore, I don’t think any strategic thinking and planning has taken place about the impact of foreign labour in PNG and that includes the Chinese and Malaysians. The big question begging to be asked is: what are the manpower requirements/what would it take to develop PNG, for the next 10 years – after figuring that out perhaps the path would be clearer as to where one should go to look for unskilled labour!

    The market in PNG for unskilled labour has not been fully explored especially in fields where PNGns can be gainfully engaged.

    I think that although there may be some merit in principle to go looking for foreign labour, the implementation of a hasty decision on the part of PNG would be counter-productive and disastrous for both PNG and Bangladesh.

    I hope Maipakain and advisers are taking note of the feedback from ordinary PNGns – unskilled and skilled and whether or not a public avenue is made available for this.

    Manu, once again thank you for sharing this and for the others to have commented on this as well. The issue of foreign unskilled labour in PNG is truly is a cause for concern of every PNGn.

    Best,
    Mari

    1. Mari,

      Just saw your blog in which you mentioned Paul,myself and others.Just between us ask Emmanuel to give you my email address or yours to me.In 1975, I was doing PY .You and me and a group of others at Luave House hang around together do you remember or not;still have photos of you and others!

      Iam sick to dead of Ministers just doing their own little thing/going through the motion, without much consideration for the human resources we have.Is there much Planning on the part of the Government/s now and years gone by?Good question;because ,if there was planning and proper budgeting maybe,just maybe, PNG may not be as it is now/and has been.
      Port Moresby is not PNG.It is 1/20th of the whole Nation and yet that is where major happenings are going on.Other Provinces,well,they need a major RENOVATION, inside out!Who will fix all up?

      PNGs who have got into Parliament for the past 30years have traveled the world at our expense.I wander to myself were they blindfolded the whole time they flew from what distances to another!Did they not see how clean these places they visited were,how efficient the transport,health,education other system that cause that city or Country to function the way it was.Surely they saw people in those places they visited;did they not compared them to their own country?What was the living stands of the people,in the towns and cities they visited?What was the Law and Order there like there?Were the places clean and tidy?

      Mari,we do not have to go very far to see all this,just an hour or so by F28 and we are in Cairns.You can see how efficient/effective everything goes on there.All the things I mentioned above you can see it in Cairns;Parliament uses public purse to travel the world just for the pleasure of it.Dispela ol lain save Giamanim yumi na tok ol i wokim wok bilong government.Yupela olgeta i save long dispela kusai toktok hamas taim ol tokim yumi.

      PNG needs a whole class of leaders who are not bend backwards by money and greed and the power and prestige that goes with being elected into the parliament.Who among us can rise up and lead us away from these most miserable 35years of degradation:into poverty,untold deaths,hospitals not equipped.Our children have not had the proper education standards given to them.We cannot blame the teachers nor can we blame the doctors and nurses.It is the idiots that have being in the parliament for the past 35years.

      No proper planning and budgeting and everybody is there for their own good and not for the Country.Papua New Guineans,we all have to be responsible for who we elect into the next parliament.Lets vote with our eyes wide open,vote for your own human dignity,vote for ourselves our children and not for those demons who come around and tell you lies that may tickle your ears to vote for them.

  17. I am Mohammad Shaiful Islam operating a recruitment office in Bangladesh and we have another office in Melbourne ,Australia.we would like to provide skill workers including professional demand to PNG.My self I was in PNG last week so their has lots of demand for skill workers so if any company have skill shortage please contact me on this number-+61-423311259.Basically their has no demand for labor as far I have seen & the workers have to have a minimum English skill.

    Shaiful

  18. The news about the visit of PNG Labour Minister and meet the officials of Bangladesh for the possibility of recruiting Bangladeshi workers to PNG is good sign of bilateral relation between two brotherly countries. I do not know much about PNG and its economy but can guess it is a developing country and have huge natural resourses. The needs development in its infrastructure, oil & gas and agriculture.
    May be there are large number of PNG people is jibless. But the benefit of recruiting Bangladeshi workers for a certain period will help PNG work force to be trained. Foreign workers is not the permanent solution of country but it will help to develop its work force for future projects. On the other hand the companies engaged in developing PNG can benefit from low wages demanded by Bangladeshi workers. Middle Eastern countries, Singapore, Malaysia, Korea, Mauritious are the main employer of Bangladeshi workers where millions of Bangladeshi Professionals, Doctor, Nurses, Engineers, skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled manpower are employed for a decade. Bangladeshi workers have great contribution of the economic development of these countries. The reason is- Bangladeshi workers are very hard working, honest, sincere, obedient, polite, Non-alholic, want to work long working hours and have no home sickness. Also they have very little demand compare to other labour exporting countries. There is another benefits of employing Bangladeshi workers is that it will open more business opportunities between two brotherly countries. Bangladesh can import PNG products and pNG can import bangladeshi products which will help to develop bilateral relation between PNG and Bangladesh, an emerging economi tiger in Asia.
    If any PNG or foreign companies are thinking to employ Bangladeshi manpower, we are the right choice because we are government approved, one of the top ten recruiting agency, have good track record and have very attractive offer. We work digital, round the clock, 7 days a week, 365 days in a year and have pole of database of job seekers. Employers or their authorised representative are welcome to come here for couducting interview and can select their workers from short list listed candidates. Procedure of recruting Bangladeshi workers from us is very simple. Employer need to issue a demand letter and power of attorney, attested from their chamber of commerce and ministry of foreign affairs. Than we will invite them to visit to Bangladesh for final selection. More over we have a modern state of art training centre jint venture with Malaysia to train technical work force as per employers demand. Our workers are well spoken in English.
    So pls contact us at:amin981@idsbangladesh.net and visit our website:www.amintoursbd.com for more details.
    Best regards
    Ruhul Amin

  19. Sorry Bhangladesh companies,
    I think there is a missunderstanding with the statement made
    by the PNG Politician, Mr. Mark Maikaipai or whatever who he is.

    I believe the Operators have to consider the PNGean workers first before
    other countries can be considered..

    Otherwise, the project will not take place..

  21. I am a medical doctor.I am also interested to do job in PNG according to my
    Profiency of knowledge in my profession.I also did job abroad for 02 years.
    But i can not understand why there is hell discussion about this matter. I
    am sure they don’t know enough about Bangladesh and Bangladeshi workers.Hereby i would like to suggest them to know more and more about Bangladesh.After that they will pass there comments.
    thanks,
    Dr Md Rustam Ali

    1. My good doctor,

      You appear to show some degree of ignorance about PNG and so you should pass your comments and wait until such time when you are needed. We are merely playing our part to protect ourselves and are trying to separate the contenders from the pretenders before it’s too late.

      We do need expertise in certain areas to help build our country but it is too risky to simply go out with an open arm and welcome every man and his dog. At the end of the day, we are a sovereign state and not a corporation and the interests of our own citizens reign paramount over all else.

  22. Hey David,
    I think you are in restless mood. Don’t worry we are enough to adapt in every situation. You know now it is the time of globalization.So thinking
    should be run after demand and situation.
    Lastly for your acknowlegment,I say that information technology helps me
    to learn some what details about PNG.

    1. Globalisation is not a ticket to simply go scavenging for opportunities everywhere and pushing people of a particular locality to the fringes.

      We will give the opportunities created by our country to our own people first. Then we will call for help from other people such as you for those that we either do not have the skills to do or simply don’t have people to do it. Even when you come here, this will not be a guaranteed lifetime job for you. You will have to be prepared to make yourself redundant at some point in time in the future.

  23. Dear Customer, Are you in need of loan ? who have difficulty obtaining working capital loans from local banks other financial institutions?, credit scores £ or dollars, Get out of financial trouble today and get funding for projects that dream today with a low interest rate of 3 % for one (1) year.

  34. HOWARD’S VALUES IN MELANESIA – PART 2
    “A Mariner’s Catch-Cry”
    It is of worthwhile historical interest that whilst ‘mate-ship’ and giving someone a ‘fair go’ appear worthy exhortations, one can readily understand and appreciate the sociological processes by which these have now come to be exalted by a 21st century Prime Minister like John Howard as national values for Australia.

    We don’t have to reach too far back to find the hand of history at work among the psyche of sea borne convicts who needed to extol the virtues of “mate-ship” (or ship-mates) and “fair go” as being necessary survival catch-cries in over-crowded and plague ridden hulls and decks, where one could have killed for a piece of dried bread or a sip of rancid water. The mariner’s catch-cries borne out of abject tyranny, constantly staring at the face of death, have been deeply seared into the collective conscience of a nation, and as such, become as it were, the obligatory rite of passage for a post-cold war modern state. They have been galvanized into iconic symbols of mortal struggle against all manners of natural elements and artificial odds, and ultimately the triumph of the human spirit in a new land. Howard seized upon this experience of recent history, and under its peaceful afterglow, he sought to hue out of it a preamble, and rallying point, for a post Nine Eleven Australia.

    In what has suddenly become the age of terrorism, with the emergence of new super powers in the region, as Prime Minister of an incongruously European enclave in the Pacific, Howard saw himself as the first chief executive in Australian politics to inaugurate some sort of mission statement that would become the necessary turbo-charge to propel his country forward, and to cement his place in Australian political folklore. He sought meaning and intellectual solace within the nation’s brief life experience to give utterance to some form of common purpose and direction to the occurrence of his people on a dry, arid and somewhat alien continent. He attempted to weave history seamlessly into the challenges facing a modern state, to proclaim the dawning of a new era for a modern Australia, based on what he claimed to be homogeneous values. He gleaned from history the collective experiences that would hold Australians to a new horizon, a new prism, from which to view the past, draw strength from it, to face the ever uncertain future with confidence.

    How fitting and ingenious it was for Howard, who was Prime Minister for well over a decade, to deliberately reach back into the dark recesses of his country’s brief history and craft out of it some timeless values that, like a deceased persons last will and testament, or a futuristic software program, would ensure even after he had long departed the corridors of power, he still ruled the country in the legacy of the values he laid. In a sense, this may be deemed by some as an attempt by Howard at ultimate political immortality.

    Howard’s sudden burst of statesmanship would also be the culmination of several other concerns playing at the back of his mind, chief among these may have been the quest to find something to hold together a people made more disparate by years of pursuing a policy of multiculturalism, a coterie of scattered peoples with no common cause or common back ground. In his many years in Parliament, he must have seen the need for the creation of a homogenous value system to unite every Australian under. There is no greater contradiction, no greater paradox, no greater tragedy than being Prime Minister of a people who do not believe in anything, who lack any common cause for cohesion and direction, just merely existing out of sheer necessity and by the cold force of statute law, in an otherwise economically prosperous land mass. It was, as if in a flash of hallucination, Howard saw out of the Simpson Desert, rise, a gigantic mirage of a distorted, disjointed, worn and weathered people, wandering in dreamlike trance, with nothing to hold their ragged spirits, nothing to fight for, nothing to live for, and nothing to die for, all while drowning in a sea of immense and obscene prosperity.

    Surely as a devout Presbyterian it would have played on his mind the trials and tribulations of ancient Moses leading his people out of Egypt, through the Red Sea, and around in circles, fighting needless enemy after enemy, under similar desert skies, for forty long years. Surely Howard would have silently paraphrased with his own lips the salient prophetic warning: what does it profit Australia if it should gain the whole world by its material prosperity out of Aborigine lands, but lose its own soul? To lose its way in a spiritless and soulless existence held together only by the hundreds of legislation passed by various parliaments every year is an empty affair. The ability to regulate, and over-regulate, is sometimes mistaken for cohesion of a people or even nationhood, when in reality it is an artificial fettering of the will and soul of a people.

    In many ways Howard was not as motivated by the cause of homogeneity, or sameness, and social cohesion as he was for submission of all to his ideals. Howard appeared to be an overt racist (as exemplified by his 1989 leadership loss), in as much as he was careful to camouflage it. He was against Asian Immigration as much as he was determined never to apologize to the stolen generation of Australian indigenous people. He saw China as an enemy as much as he wanted to sell his coal and iron ore to them to secure his own balance of payments.

    Of course as true as the ancient Moses never entered the promise land, Howard duly lost the next elections in the most dramatic and personally humiliating way possible that was almost reminiscent of judgment day for a protestant.

    Under its long held policy of multiculturalism, which replaced the previously 150 year old White Australia Policy, Australia’s phenomenal economic growth and prosperity was underscored by great demographic shifts in urban areas where eighty percent of the population live. Suburbs where white Australia lived and worked for decades have become enclaves or exclusive domains of the Greek, Italian, Lebanese, Turkish, Vietnamese, and even Korean immigrants. Cityscapes were demarcated with bright neon phalluses and other edifices by the gay and lesbians to celebrate their bold rise, and conquest, of more than pubs and malls. They all brought with them their gods and their songs; for how could multiculturalism expect them to possibly live without their songs? No people can live or survive without their songs. How can they possibly otherwise sing their songs in a strange, hot and hostile land, unless, of course, their gods also came to carry them through? So today we see the sky lines of Australian suburbia spotted with spires, towers and pinnacles of churches, synagogues, mosques and shrines to almost every god conceivably known to humanity.

    In the post Nine Eleven era, while George Bush was moving decisively with the weight of conservative America behind him to annihilate Muslims and their god, so too was Howard of the view that this presented an opportunity to limit Asian and Boat people Immigration and bring all the disparate songs and their gods to account in multicultural Australia under his newfound values. This was also a moment for Howard to signal his departure from multiculturalism, distinguish himself from Menzies’ and Curtin’s White Australia legacies, and more recently Keating and Labor’s partly successful policy of assimilation of Australia into Asia and APEC, to write a new song of mate-ship and fair go for all Australians, new and old, to sing in unison.

    With the realization of the rise of a New World Order came something else that bothered Howard who was sitting at the bottom of the Pacific looking up the mini skirt of the world, so to speak, glancing back and forth between Asia and America. With China and India rising through the artifice of capitalism to take their proper places in history, Howard’s Australia could no longer glibly take its foreign policy cue carte blanche from the United States whose power under his mate Bush was clearly waning. Howard had to somewhat define Australia’s position.

    It is no longer a secret that America has been living way beyond its ability to produce; its hand weakened by debt, could no longer enforce the rules of Brentwood Conference to keep every dog in its place. Howard, placed in a precarious position, as world events unraveled fast, while waltzing and tangoing with his friend Bush has had to keep an eye on the others on the dance floor. While Bush was unawares Howard had to occasionally spin, unfurl his dress and show his wares to the others to keep them interested. That has always been the double tonguing, double faced and double talking character of Australian foreign and trade policy in so far as the Americans are concerned, and vice versa. The AWB wheat sales to Sadam Hussein in breach of UN sanctions was one such example of Howard unfurling his dress, double tonguing and dirty dancing. Thankfully, for him and Downer, he was the one who set the terms of reference of the Cole Commission of Inquiry to escape answering any questions for what could otherwise have been a dirty-flour bomb exploding in his face.

    Australia’s current trade policy with China is another example of Australia playing double games over China as far as the Americans are concerned. By way of insurance, the US has a strong lobby in Canberra to ensure Australia does not betray the US Defense interests for thirty pieces of silver from China.

    Australia is also playing double games with China itself, tricking China into believing it is a bona-fide trading partner, when it is not, prompting recent call by businessmen like Andrew Forrest (of Fortesque Metals) on Australian leaders to abandon their narrow racist phobias against China and be genuine about doing business with China. Australia has deep and abiding prejudices against China, which includes Defense Policy modeling of China as the new enemy.

    American trade policy, on the other hand has been no different as far as Australia was concerned when it came to selling beef or wheat in terms of competing for the same export destinations, refusing in trade negotiations to sign protective exclusivity or reservation clauses that Australia preponderated to keep certain markets to itself.

    Howard realized that, APEC and WTO aside, he had to take advantage of changing dynamics and perceptions, and artfully keep China and India economically engaged beyond just exporting iron ore and coal to China and taking Indian students into Australian universities. Howard also wanted to assert a new position for Australia in the order of things with the US in decline.

    For Howard’s Australia, the historical European Common Market access could no longer be taken for granted. The European countries transforming into a wider European Union with a unified currency and open and flexible (Intra-European Union) market access posed a serious dilemma for the traditional Australian agricultural exports to Europe. The inevitability of Australia losing its market share in exports into Europe became a huge challenge a decade ago. Now a decade on, the challenge clearly became how Howard could keep positive foreign policy engagement, especially in trade, with the Europeans, the Israelis, Arabs, Indonesia, India and China and at the same time do everything under the sun to keep them out of the growing important resource rich economies of the Pacific’s mainly Melanesian countries. In so far as the United States was concerned, Howard had to figure out just how Howard could assure it to keep Australia as a worthy Defense ally in the Pacific, and at the same time keep the United States businessmen and their capital markets out of the Pacific. In a sense Australia wanted to be to the US regarding investments in Melanesia, what England is to the US regarding investments in the European Union.

    Australia’s export capacity in agriculture to Europe and elsewhere has markedly declined in the last twenty years in most sectors in contrast to New Zealand’s comparable products in the same period. This is partly because Australia pursued unwise domestic economic policies that have had the effect of stripping its farming base and debasing its sources of rural innovation, resulting in displacing some of its key rural industries and attendant populations. Certain market policies were pursued to make way for Australia’s entry into more liberalized and globalized capitalist markets underpinned by free trade and free market theories of capitalism.

    Some rural industries, like fruit farms, fruit processing and canning businesses like Letona and Watties, owned and operated by large multinationals in southern New South Wales and rural Victoria, folded or downsized responding to decisions in head offices elsewhere overseas for reasons of achieving greater global efficiency or in response to popular push for free trade. Others folded for industrial relations related adverse cost and efficiency factors. Whole townships dependent on single industries simply died and became ghost towns with remaining population going on welfare and the dole. Many generational orchards and farming lands have been let go and families have fled the bush for lack of government support in times of difficulty, including years of lack of drought support in some areas.

    Commercial banks who have lent to farms in good times refused to reschedule terms when the commodity prices faltered. Some banks who provided negligent or questionable foreign exchange advice to farmers and supported their heavy foreign currency borrowings abandoned the farmers without recompense when they made extraordinary losses. In some cases the government has not come up with workable and innovative farm-gate financing solutions for those farmers engaged in the direct export of commodities. Instead many generational farming communities of Australia have been left high and dry, and in some cases hung to dry by deliberate shifts to pursue capitalist ideologies of free trade. Yet others have been challenged to give up their profitable farms in favor of coal, coal seam or iron ore miners moving in.

    Water has been another major issue for farmers in certain parts. Governments, both Federal and State, have become more and more part of the problem than the solution in coming up with coherent water use policies that would benefit all inhabitants of Australia, especially along the Murray-Darling and the Murrumbidgee river basins. This has adversely affected farmers in several States through which these great rivers once flowed so freely and prolifically. The problem is not just in accessing use and even distribution of water by farmers upstream and by other users downstream; there is a serious issue relating to the type of industries accessing the water- whether the economic returns and the comparative advantages gained are worth the volume of water consumed in industries like cotton for instance, comparing to returns on say rice or wheat? There are other pressing issues of maintaining fragile areas of the environment for preservation of fish, bird and other wildlife species in wetland type zones that are threatened by drought type conditions brought on by artificially snuffing the life out of river systems.

    Then there is the overall problem of lack of volume of total available water. In some parts of Australia ‘…no man never saw it rain, for fifty years at least. Not when the blessed parakeets are flyn’ to the east!”. Some States like New South Wales and Queensland are seriously contemplating expenditure upward of 24 billion dollars each on desalination plants to supply cities like Sydney and Brisbane. This very expensive option has not factored into the equation the needs of their respective farming communities who are left to the vagaries of changed weather patterns and increased drought conditions. The demand for water for farmers in most affected States of Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia has reached a point where the price per unit of limited supply has been somewhat heated to the extent that the States have not been able to agree on drawing rights and pricing. This has caused the Federal Government to intervene and legislatively assume water powers and administration, creating a Federal Ministry for Water, taking debate on it to a national level.

    No matter what the final pricing or distribution rights they finally agree to, the issue of overall total available volume in a dry continent frequented further by regular and severe bouts of drought will not be solved within the current paradigms evident and contemplated.

    When one stops to consider the magnitude of the problem, it does not take much imagination or cost in comparative terms, in the final analysis, to sink a few draw pipes into a river or two from the Gulf of Papua and pump down to Australia all that clean fresh pristine water from the tropical rainforests of Papua New Guinea. They could easily pump that water right into current dams and reservoirs and supply the farms and cities directly at a miniscule of what it is costing them now, and the small fortune that lack of water is likely to cost them in the future. When one considers that the volume of water that flows through the Murray-Darling in one whole year flows through any one of the Strickland, Lakekamu, or Purari rivers in less than a day, it is not such a silly idea after all!

    However, such dreams of huge water pipes and a dry and barren land coming alive, lay only in the realms of possibility of those who are called by the mover of man and mountains to be visionaries and leaders of men. It is for those who are born to be hunters to hunt, fishermen to fish, and fortunetellers to tell us about tomorrow. For Australia’s tomorrow, it will be a long time before it births a leader who has both promise and passion, with a real connection with the land, who is not faint of heart, possessed of such dare and vision to see those still dry bones rise once more, those dry river beds and canyons rejuvenated, and the deserts greener than ever before, to feed an ever growing and ever hungry world.

    Sadly, the reality of Australia’s loss is not just in abandoned properties and dilapidated farm sheds over what was once productive and thriving rural Australia. The real loss is in farming and land management skills developed over generations of working with the land. A significant body of knowledge, wisdom, and the gritty spirit of the Australian bush borne out of living with and living off a dry and harsh landscape, may well be lost through lack of imagination in leadership. As TS Eliot would ask, “where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?” With its leadership adopting glibly the Harvard business school type productivity and efficiency prescriptions based on economic models that are usually at odds with the interests of real Australia, the bush will continually come under immense pressure until it can no longer hold the spirit of its inhabitants. For some that is already the case.

    The prescriptions of World Trade Organization, APEC, GATT, the failed Uruguay Round, the nearby the DOHA round, the recent G8 leader’s post-GFC designs, aimed at preserving capitalism, if not carefully adjusted and adapted, can be at great odds with preservation of real lives and an iconic way of life in Australia. At the end of the day real people and real lives are sacrificed at the altar of capitalism, for the sake of preserving and perpetuating what in reality is an ideology, an ideology that is proving to unravel at the seams with the world in financial turmoil. Handing out huge amounts of cash to banks by governments is an obscene transfer of public wealth to the hands of those mega rich few who own and control these financial institutions, all for the sake of perpetuating a system nearly collapsed by the sheer greed of these very financial institutions.

    It cannot possibly be fairly characterized as giving the bush or the rural populous a fair go by any government, let alone Australian, when you consider that these very banks have closed down hundreds of farms and sent thousands to the jobless and homeless ques. Try explaining the imposts of free trade to the Innisfail banana farmer in Far North Queensland, the rice farmer in Leeton, or the wheat farmer in the Liverpool Plains, in whose hands Australia continues to pin its hopes of a place in the new economically altered world order, but fails to tangibly support.

    The other cause for loss of the farming productivity and way of life is failure by successive Federal and State governments of Australia to reinvest in and follow through funding in research and development in agricultural crop and livestock productivity, and pest control research. Pests like rabbits are back stronger than ever in destroying the malley, pasture land and crops because of government failure to conduct follow through research for their eradication. In comparison to the US, Japan, China, India, Singapore, Malaysia, and other progressive economies, Australia has failed to invest in R&D at the same level in the last 30 years to capture its own ingenuity. It is obvious that successive Australian leaders, like Howard, (Rudd and now Gillard) have run out of new and fresh ideas for increasing farm productivity and have opted instead to take the soft option in placing the Australian economy on an almost irresponsible footing with heavy reliance on (including taxing) its finite natural resources to save the day and bring home the bacon.

    The Howard government privatized large publicly owned corporations such as the Commonwealth Bank and Telstra, sold huge chunks of Australia to foreign interests like the Chinese and the Arabs in terms of large tracts of pasture land and rural properties, stud farms, coal, iron ore, aluminum and natural gas properties, before they were voted out.

    Howard even changed the media ownership laws and sanctioned Publishing & Broadcasting Limited, the iconic Australian media company that Sir Frank Packer founded the Packer family fortune on, to be sold. Unconfirmed word in certain sectors has it that a large chunk of PBL was ultimately sold to fronts for suspected Chinese interests trading off gaming industry opportunities in the former Portuguese, now Chinese, controlled Maccau. To India, Australia has begun a process to sell them uranium and other resources like iron ore. This is all part of Australia responding to the ordering of the new world.

    When Climate Change policy threatened the natural resources sector, Howard opted to join the skeptics, as it was politically convenient to save the coal industry- the goose that lays the golden egg for Australia. This created one of the biggest macro policy dilemmas Australia has ever faced. Australian government and its leadership have had to decide whether they are interested to save the planet, or stay in government. The choice between keeping the jobs of the mine workers in the coal industry or save the world has not been an easy one. The Howard government lacked courage to take this decision. The Rudd government was also beset with the same dilemma. It has found out that it is not enough to have a vision. Vision must be supported by knowledge and understanding; but above all else courage, and courage in the face of a powerful mining lobby. For Rudd this presented itself as the moment of difference between world leadership and remaining a mediocre (Australian) politician, and there are many, who inevitably like a field of daisies, bloom in the morning and fade with the setting sun. Rudd was not going to be a daisy, and he paid the price with a knife to his back.

    Once again, a leader of men, a man of abiding courage and deep conviction, a dreamer, a prophet and a political-entrepreneur, a social democrat- if you like, is yet to emerge from the pack who will distinguish himself or herself with the ability to engender big hearts and big enough minds to dream Australia out of the unhealthy and imbalanced political, social, and economic paradigms that it finds itself entombed in. A leader that will, as Howard attempted to do, forge a common basis of identity (aside from meat pies, vegemite, Holden Utes and footy games) to provide a truly spiritual basis for coming together, is yet to emerge. This lack has seriously undermined and will continue to afflict Australia’s bid to become a significant political and economic player in the region as part of the new order of things.

    Australia at times sees itself as stuck in the Pacific, so far away from everyone, every group and everything else that matters to it economically and culturally. As such, Howard realized that unless, it grew a voice and perhaps could shed its umbilical cord and unite its people under some form or shape of common values, and started to make some noise of relevancy likened to some sort of a median player in the region, it is destined to become redundant and a non-event. Hence Howard’s quest to become a middle power or regional power was an attempt at addressing this fear, which lies at the heart of an even deeper crisis- a crisis of identity. It is almost a desperate bid to remain and maintain some potency and relevancy on a stage where the scenery and the props are constantly changing. For Asia, the show has definitely moved on, and Australia has to catch up.

    Howard’s new-found concept of being a median player may well have been inspired by Peter Jackson, a New Zealander, who directed the film sequel Lord of the Rings which hit the box office about the same time. Howard echoed the notion of the existence of a mythical land known as Middle Earth as seen in that film’s adaptation of Tolkien’s famous novel. By asserting a position openly, Howard felt that he could with the stroke of a pen put paid to the deep spiritual crisis of identity that has plagued white Australia ever since John Banks suggested the idea of convicts and jails in the Antipodes.

    One of Australia’s other great phobias is that it will be seen as just a big hole in the ground where natural resources are dug out of, and nothing more.

    The perfect solution for Australia, it seemed to Howard, was to create for itself a role on the world stage and then superimpose that role on the neighboring countries and the region through regional Aid policies, whilst domestically mobilizing the population to fight the scourge of Muslim terrorism, and getting everyone to rally to sing a new song of Mate-ship and Fair go. Hence, he put himself forward as Bush’s Deputy Sherriff in the Pacific, aided by an Irish catholic in Mick Kelty as his go to man with equally expansive ideas and designs on the role of the Australian Federal Police. Howard embarked feverishly on activities aimed at greater regional cooperation on developmental and security interests to put Australia at the helm of the Pacific, sought observer and member status in regional forums like ASEAN, sought a seat on the UN Security Council, used aid and treaty based institutional strengthening programs as effective tools of imposition in the Asia and Pacific regions- all in a bid to remain relevant, and fight its demons at the same time.

    On this particular Australia Day in 2007, Howard used the event to also serve notice on New Australians not to deviate from his stated values. His desire to create a homogenous society caused his values to be written into official government (Immigration) policy and pledges. Howard also attempted to use the proclamation of these values to somewhat under-pin a new culture of egalitarianism based on mate-ship and a fair go in Australian society, just as the Puritans and other Pilgrims did in founding the Americas, culminating in the proclamation of the Bill of Rights, the American Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.

    However, even if Howard’s speech on that Australia Day was intended to give a certain Jeffersonian resonance, or a semblance of a Washingtonian moment, to convey him deep political gratification and a lasting legacy, the terms mate-ship and fair go are a far cry from language befitting a constitution of federation or declaration of independence. They are not exactly the rousing and deeply venerated prose of idealism that stirs the spirit and beckons the soul of every Australian toward the lofty, the sublime, and the noble. Nor are they words that inspire Australians to scale the majestic heights of idealism and be held enthralled and captivated by principles higher than their own mortal selves, like the timeless spirit and essence patently alive in the wonderful prose of the American Constitution, and in that of the Declaration of Independence. These terms of mate-ship and fair go, in actual fact, respectively, dangle like a broken pendulum in the wind, resonating precariously between a melancholic lament and a protest of malcontent. As a result they are no more than common slang that represent more fluff and feathers than the real turkey because, in actual contemporary Australian society, they neither reflect a past that is commonly shared nor a future to be commonly hoped for by all who have now come to call themselves Australian.

    The challenge that remains, still, for Australian leaders is how can they, as leaders of disparate groups of mainly migrants, on Aborigine soil, in Melanesian Pacific, without the threat of the oppressive manacles and artifices of statute law, come together and freely assert a cohesive position and place, birthing a new spirit of the Australian people, of a singular soul, to be made self-evident as one people, as the new world order unfolds- living with due regard and reverence for the place and position of the Aborigine and the Melanesian on this side of God’s earth?

    As for mate-ship and fair go, they remain for now, common slangs, reminiscent of a time and a place, a mariner’s survival catch-cry that cannot give, take or hold life, let alone the soul of a disparate people.
