Many thanks Jaquelin for your interest in this article. The ongoing dispute in Bourganville that has remain unresolved for the past twenty or more years needs some serious attention from some eminent
concern mediators to come forward to offer their skill and expertise preferably on pro bono bais

The SIMC would be delighted to mediate this dispute. However the dispute in Bourganville between the Bourganville Copper Mines ( one of the biggest in the world) and the landowners/farmers involves more social economic issues than just simply commercial. Hence mediation bodies and platforms such as MEdnet, APMF and APMC and others should take the initiative to dialogue with the disputing parties and invite them to the negotiating table without waiting for the courts in New York and elsewhere to find ‘solutions’ for them. The resources in Bourganville has been left idling and unproductive for decades. This is a call to all the eminent mediators of the world to come forward and offer their services and expertise to help alleviate the sufferings of the poor landowners/farmers in that region.!
