Vanimo, Jubi – Papua Language Institute (PLI) officially launch a new branch in West Sepik Province.  A higher education service in Papua New Guinea has a similar vision with the PLI, which aims to reach educational service in all regions.

“Through our institution, we want to build collaboration to support the people of Papua and Papua New Guinea in learning English and Bahasa Indonesia,” Samuel Tabuni, the founder of Papua Language Institute told reporters in West Sepik on Friday, (13/12/2019).

Tabuni further admitted his institution has collaborated with a higher educational service in Papua New Guinea for two years before the launching. This collaboration is not only focused on language learning development but also other business.

“Papua and Papua New Guinea are families. But because of the language barrier, it hampers our communication and relationship. Therefore, we launch a branch of PLI here,” said Tabuni.

According to him, the provincial government of Papua has built good diplomatic relations with PNG. But, it needs to further transform this diplomatic relationship into an institution that can facilitate business, economy, and education. He believes that the international branch of PLI would not only launch in Vanimo, but there are also possibilities to launch in some border regions.

Furthermore, Tabuni hopes that the collaboration between the people of PNG and Papua can support the economic development of both areas and improve people’s livelihood.

“We hope there would be further collaboration in other sectors. Therefore, we can achieve better development and address poor communication, told Tabuni.

A student of PLI, Samuel Womsiwor, acknowledge the launching of PLI branch office in PNG. According to him, this international branch would enable students in PNG to exchange learning information with Papuan students to improve their intellectual skills.

“It’s very beneficial to improve the livelihood of people in Melanesian region as well as in Pacific,” said Womsiwor (*).
