Forum on innovation planned


A MAJOR conference dedicated to innovation will be held in Port Moresby on Nov 8, jointly organised by Port Moresby Chamber of Commerce (POMCCI) and Business Advantage International (BAI).
According to a statement from Business Advantage commercial director Robert Hamilton-Jones, the conference was an international-standard event bringing the best of new technology, creative solutions and innovative thinking to Papua New Guinea’s business community.
It would provide the opportunity for the country’s wider business and government community to learn from, be inspired by, and engage with the most relevant innovators from PNG and overseas.
Announcing the event at last month’s Business Advantage PNG Investment Conference, BAI publishing director Andrew Wilkins said: “We want to create an event that is not only for senior executives, but also for their management teams and their brightest graduates.”
POMCCI president Rio Fiocco said: “The Coral Sea Cable will be a game changer for all businesses in PNG. Come along and learn how the new internet cable will impact on how you do business in PNG and with the world.”
The event will cover a broad spectrum of topics including developing an innovation culture in your business, how better internet connectivity would transform local business, digital banking and how local entrepreneurs are finding creative ways to solve uniquely PNG challenges.
It would feature international keynote speakers and multiple streams for the afternoon session.
