Due to the high costs of airfreight Wantok Niuspepa is rationalizing its distributions and circulation plans to other provinces and we are examining other transportation options.

From 2011 we drastically increase our paper numbers, distribution and circulation to the Highlands, Momase and New Guinea Island provinces if the National commences printing of the Wantok Niuspepa from their new printer in Lae. Southern Region will be serviced by the printing press in Port Moresby.
