The theme of the 2022 Morobe Show is BE PRODUCTIVE and we would like everyone to stop and think briefly about the message behind the theme.
BE A CONTRIBUTOR – BE PRODUCTIVE that is the message we want to send to young people in Lae and Morobe and Papua New Guinea. Just because you may not have a job does not mean that you can’t contribute to the general wealth of the country. Just because you may not have a job does not mean that you have to steal to get money. Just because you don’t have a job does not mean that you can’t be productive.
Find some ground, plant a garden, grow some food or flowers or plants to sell. Start your own cash business. Don’t rely on adds in the paper for a job. Don’t rely on family and wantoks to support you.
Find some ground – BE PRODUCTIVE – GROW SOMETHING – and you and Papua New Guinea will be better for it.
Come and visit the Show. Visit the Agricultural and Horticultural Displays and get some ideas. The Show is not just rides and entertainment. Use it to learn and BE PRODUCTIVE.
Use the land; use your skills and BE PRODUCTIVE.

Have a great Morobe Show!!!!!!!!
