The newspaper article title ‘ENB sets up crocs project’ is base on a project that would be a success in the future. The project is about East New Britain (ENB) Division of Primary Industry establishing a crocodile population manage control program in the province. The project is to look at removing crocodiles from populated areas as well as venturing into crocodile faming and crocodile skin export business. With this skin export business project it would create wealth in the province. The project will link directly with the Vision 2050 pillar number two Wealth Creation.
