He says that he appreciates being selected to be a part of the visionary journey the department is undertaking to build PNG to meet globalization standards in Today's world.

“I have always been interested in digital advancement and technology and how Papua New Guinea can incorporate these modern methods in governance and service delivery to add value to our robust digital economy, thus I am always actively supporting, posting, and sharing the department's agendas on my LinkedIn account to help advocate on the Department's agendas, efforts, and information delivery,” says Mr. Ealedona.
