Question Raised On Reprogram of ADB Water & Sewer Loan for Fiber-optic

Posted on by Oceania TV News

The Palau House of Traditional Leaders has sent a letter to President Toribiong challenging the reprogramming of funds from the ADB Loan for water and sewer development to instead purchase a used fiber-optic cable to upgrade Palau’s internet.  In the letter, click the traditional leaders choose health and the environment over telecommunications.  Some parts of Palau, especially the Malakal area, have serious sewer issues with waste erupting from manhole covers and a strong scent of sewage in the air affecting homes and businesses in the tourist area.
