Initiative empowering women in business


PAPUA New Guinea Women Entrepreneurs Connect (PNGWEC) joined the Define Initiative to empower and motivate women to be successful in business.
PNGX Markets, PNG Digital Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Cluster, Emerging Venture Management and Pacific Capital Markets Development are organisations that form Define Initiative.
Define Initiative desires to expand access of banking and financial services to women and the vulnerable.
It also wants to enhance technology, particularly ICT, to promote women empowerment.
PNGWEC chairman Esther Igo said they were pleased to be an integral partner of Define Initiative.
“This is a very strategic partnership as PNGWEC endeavour to promote, facilitate and progress the agenda of economic empowerment of women in Papua New Guinea,” she said.
“Most women with their Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) have concentrated their operations locally, and this partnership will open opportunity to accelerate and boost the women MSMEs into trading and exporting internationally.”
PNGX Markets chairman David Lawrence said PNGWEC was an important partner for the development of Define Initiative.
