33rd Australia Papua New Guinea Business Forum & Trade Expo

May 14th, 2017 - May 16th, 2017


The Business Council of Papua New Guinea and the Australia Papua New Guinea Business Council are pleased to launch the 33rd Australia Papua New Guinea Business Forum to be held at the Stanley International Hotel and Suites, Sir John Guise Drive, Waigani Port Moresby from 14 to 16 May 2017.

The Forum theme is 'Navigating the Cycle: Creating Opportunities in Challenging Times'. The theme aims to capture the important message that Papua New Guinea has unprecedented opportunity to manage its way through the cycle and position itself for future growth, leveraging advantages for the prosperity to benefit its entire people. The Forum is well established as the major annual bilateral business meeting between Australia and Papua New Guinea, and builds on the work both Councils have done over more than three decades in growing the bilateral business relationship.

The program for the Forum includes an overview of the economic climate, especially issues which effect business and investment, and will include specific sessions by expert presenters on doing business in PNG, including topics such as introducing competition into the Power sector; trade, business opportunities for agriculture.  There will be an opportunity for delegates to engage in lively interaction with presenters in most sessions including in smaller work groups.  There is something in the program for just about everyone with an interest in the bilateral business relationship and in the economy of Papua New Guinea.

The Forum will again feature a Trade Expo for Australian and Papua New Guinean companies and other international firms wishing to use the opportunity to market their goods and services to clients and purchasers in each country, and to broaden their business relationships.  This year we intend to have 80 plus booths which will be a record number
