“Papua New Guinea: Opportunities Beyond the Boom” is the forum’s theme, which aims to capture the important message that PNG needs to look beyond today’s resources boom to ensure sustainable prosperity for its people. Enhanced business-to-business relations between PNG and Australia can play a key role.

Key government ministers from Australia and Papua New Guinea, and a range of other expert speakers, have been invited to address the Forum to inform business representatives of policy issues in their portfolio relevant to business.

The Forum will feature a Trade Expo for Australian and Papua New Guinean companies wishing to use the opportunity to market their goods and services to clients and purchasers in each country, and to broaden their business relationship.

Outcomes expected from the meeting include better insights into business and investment opportunities available through further developing the bilateral business and investment relationship, including through contacts made with other business people.

Business groups in each country will present to government issues of policy change and administrative action needed to facilitate bilateral business and investment growth.
