Big opportunities in PNG in 2017

PNG is a developing country. Although it’s going through a difficult time economically at the moment as a result of the decrease in the resource prices, as a developing country, it still has a relatively high rate of growth. With that high rate of growth, comes increasing demand for foreign investment and other skills and services in the country. If you take, for example, the mobile phone sector, mobile phone penetration is relatively lower in PNG than by international standards. As penetration increases, the demand for technology and related services to support the mobile phone industry will increase. We’re really excited to be on the ground in PNG and I look forward to working with foreign and domestic corporations to continue to encourage investment in the country and the people generally.
