From the first page- "While the Papua New Guinea government at present pays lip service to the importance of the national cultural heritage in the development of a modern nation, its practice leaves much to be desired, whether by design or from ignorance. This is especially true in the field of language about which the government utters pious sentiments, but takes little concrete action to make positive use of the nation's linguistic heritage."
