Sunkamap Times - Bougainville's New Newspaper

Wednesday July 14, 2004

Welcome to the Sunkamap Times website

The Sunkamap Times is Bougainville's new newspaper and is the first newspaper on Bougainville to cover the whole region. It is published by the Information Office of the Department of Bougainville and is supported by the New Zealand Agency for International development, NZAID, who have provided funding for equipment and printing.

The establishment of the Sunkamap Times is a big step in restoring normalcy to Bougainville and is a positive sign that things are changing for the better. In the run-up to an Autonomous Bougainville, the Sunkamap Times will play an important role in providing awareness and information.

Now the people of Bougainville can receive information that is factual, up-to-date and relevant to them. It is also an opportunity for ordinary people to voice their opinions and concerns and discuss openly issues that affect them.

The people of Bougainville and the Bougainville Administration gratefully acknowledge the support of the New Zealand Agency for International development - NZAID - and the people of New Zealand for their contribution to towards the production of the Sunkamap Times.
