This press release was issued by ANZ (PNG) at a press conference in Port Moresby on Friday 17 May 2002 at which Allan Marlin, ANZ's Managing Director, presented a cheque to KSI Patron, Anthony Smare. The presentation appeared on EMTV National News on Saturday 18 May 2002 and will be be reported in all PNG newspapers this week.

ANZ announces Major Sponsorship of PNG Student Organisation, Kumul Scholars International (KSI)

ANZ today announced a major sponsorship of nearly K10, 000 (A$5000) of international PNG student organisation, Kumul Scholars International (KSI).

Kumul Scholars International is an Australian-based student organisation that raises awareness amongst PNG students of issues affecting their country. The financial contribution from ANZ will assist with KSI’s activities for 2002.

Managing Director ANZ, Mr Allan Marlin said:
"As a responsible corporate citizen and employer, we are pleased to support any endeavours taken by young people of PNG to contribute beneficially to the development of the country. Our assistance to Kumul Scholars International is in line with our overall people capital development goals which includes sending our people in PNG for short and long term assignments to other points of representation in the Pacific and Australia".

Upon receipt of the cheque, KSI Patron, Anthony Smare said:
“On behalf of the KSI President Hitolo Moka, the Vice President, Pulas Yowat and the Treasurer Gae Kauzi as well as the KSI in general, I accept this generous sponsorship of A$5000 by ANZ. KSI owes its existence to generous corporate support of PNG companies like ANZ and its Principal Sponsor, Orogen Minerals.

ANZ has a developing people capital development, as illustrated by its emerging group of young managers which include former KSI members Daniel Faunt, Nathan Wingti and Michelle Ramos who are currently employed by ANZ (PNG). I believe that ANZ’s support of KSI in the way of this sponsorship package of K10, 000 reaffirms ANZ’s exemplary long-term support of PNG human resource development and its commitment to PNG. Hopefully we will continue to see the best and brightest KSI members that graduate from universities in Australia and New Zealand and elsewhere being snapped up by companies like ANZ, Orogen and the other supporters of KSI and PNG.
“

KSI’s activities for 2002
The bulk of ANZ’s corporate sponsorship for 2002 will be used to fund the KSI Convention. The KSI Convention will be hosted by the Canberra PNG Students Association from 10 –13 July 2002 at the Australian National University with over 200 PNG tertiary students from around Australia expected to attend.

The theme of the Convention will be “Structural Adjustment Programme - emi gutpela samting o nogat?" with discussion focused on the merits of the Structural Adjustment Programme for PNG. The convention will feature presentations by PNG PhD and Masters Students as well as by guest presenters.

Guest presenters at previous KSI Conventions have included prominent Papua New Guineans such as Sir Mekere Morauta, Sir Michael Somare, Lady Carol Kidu, Peter Donigi, Richard Kassman, Dr Tony Deklin, Misty Baloiloi, Charles Lepani, Paul Gazuwe and Mike Manning.

The KSI is also developing a human resource database of its members as well as a website as part of its efforts to promote the interests of PNG nationals studying at tertiary institutions abroad. Further updates on KSI’s activities for 2002 will be posted on the KSI Internet board at www.kumulscholars.org and at www.pngscape.com.

The KSICOC meeting No.12 of the 19th of May has resolved to let you know of the following developments.
Foremost as you have already read from the KSI executives, responses from corporate sposors have been very encouraging with the announcement by ANZ(Australia) via ANZ (PNG) of their sponsorship of $5000 towards the conference. The revised committee's target of approximately $16,000 is within reach. The committee sends its appreciation to the KSI executives who have been instrumental in getting the sponsorship package negotiated.

It is the committee's understanding that another major sponsor from PNG will soon be making a formal announcement of their pledge to also sponsor the conference.Details of that sponsorship will be available as soon as it is made known to the executives.

In terms of participation, encouraging responses have been received from Victoria and Queensland to date. Victoria has tentatively indicated sending about 15-20 participanats while Queeensland is yet to sort out and finalise their numbers. The committee here in Canberra is preparing for up to 50 inter state delegates to the conference.

In view of plan.B the conference committee has reprogrammed the conference to be held over two days.That is from the 10th to the 11th of July( final days will be advised after re-confirmation with KSI executives).We are confident at this stage that many more inter state delegates will nominate to travel to the conference.

We have also resolved to seek KSI approval for invitations to be extended to participants from Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. If KSI approves to the request they can also be given extended invitations to participate in the conference - Ol tu ol lain spia het bilong Melanesia...

Firstly, congratulations to all those people behind the scenes.It isn't over yet but the show of support is well-timed and much appreciated by all I believe.Especially all the committee members.

I'm a second year management student who plans on attending this years convention for the first time (as an observer i.e) and wanted to know if the committee will assist us in anyway with accommodation.
I dont mean financially in particular but would it be possible for you to negotiate with maybe a hostel,somebodys home or with the Students Assoc @ ANU for some rooms??? If not FOC (esp de hostel/StdAss)maybe a pkg @ discount prices?
