We are ready to play host, Port Moresby Governor Parkop says

 “The festival is a celebration of Melanesian arts, culture and music and I am looking forward to a successful celebration,” said Parkop.
Parkop who opened the festival village on Saturday said the festival “reminds us of our history and past, our culture and values as Melanesians”.
“We must remind ourselves that values are important,” he said.
“They are what make us who we are. If we forget them, abandon them, it will be lost in the global community.”
The opening ceremony of the village was to formalise the occupation of traditional houses and stalls.
“As your host, I want to ensure all of us, especially our visitors, that Port Moresby is ready to host you,” he said.
Parkop said the festival village would be an asset for the city. The NCD will take over the facility or partner with the National Cultural Commission to manage it.

NATIONAL Capital District Governor Powes Parkop says Port Moresby is ready to receive people from Melanesian countries for their 5th Festival of Art and Culture.
