A NEW fishing company is confident it will create more economic opportunities for the people of Papua New Guinea by way of expanding its business.
Fair Well’s new fish-packing centre in Port Moresby was opened yesterday by National Fisheries Authority managing director John Kasu.
General manager Jesse Huang said Fair Well Fisheries had opened a K6 million  fresh fish processing facility in 2007, at the PNG Ports wharf.
“It had about 45 staff to support 15 online vessels, each with 16 crew,” Huang said.
“In September 2015, this all changed when we were given notice to vacate that premises resulting with us laying off most of our employees.
“We are pleased to have secured this area within the PPL (Pacific Projects Logistics) property.
“This new facility will employ about 100 workers with more than 150 crews.
“Fair Well is here to stay for the long haul and we are looking to work closely with the locals and the authorities in the business.”
