The town lies along the economic corridor of the PNG LNG process plant and will be able to accommodate 10,000 people, in the hope that it will encourage development of business and employment opportunities.
EDAI Town Development chairman Madaha Maina said that a shuttle bus service had made it easy for EDAI residents to get to and from Port Moresby.
"Our efforts in developing affordable accommodation are now recognised as a working model helping alleviate the critical housing shortage in Port Moresby. Home loan support through the national government-BSP first home ownership scheme joint initiative has been instrumental in bringing to reality the dreams of so many Papua New Guineans owning their Edai Town homes," Maina said.
The Christmas fair will run from 10am to 3pm on both days and will showcase PNG arts, craft and other local products.
"We intend to create a carnival spirit for our visitors with booths set up by major sponsors with plenty of fun activities, including a bouncing castle. You can shop for Christmas gifts and join in the festive joy. There will be loads of children games and fun to make a good outing for the family," Maina said.
Entry is free, but registration is necessary and shuttle services will run from Century 21 Building from 9am on each day. Registration details are available at www.edaifair.com
