Quake affects BSP operations

The recent earthquake has affected the Bank South Pacific (BSP)’s operations at Tari, Komo, Mendi and Moro. The branches at these locations are now closed.

In a statement, the Bank said: “Our staff are safe but as with other people in these communities, they have suffered damages to housing and personal items.”

BSP branches at Porgera, Wabag and Mt Hagen also experienced minor damage as a result of the earthquakes but remain open.

BSP sub branches at Tambul, Pangia, Wapenamanda and Ialibu also remain open.

The management and staff are currently assessing the overall destruction to their branches and equipment for appropriate repairs to be carried out, and the reopening of branches affected.
