The National,Wednesday June 15th, 2016

PRIME Minister Peter O’Neill hopes to further expand trade, investment and job creation with businesses in Europe when he attends a forum in Paris this week.
He will be accompanied to the PNG Trade and Investment Forum by representatives of the private and public sector.
“Following last year’s successful trade and investment engagement in London, this is the second time the Government will have engaged with the European business and investor community,” O’Neill said.
“Our message is clear, that commodity process are rising, the Government is managing regional headwinds, and we are emerging from unfortunate global conditions.
“Despite the current pressures, we are making economic progress while other commodity exporting economies are struggling.
“At the forum in France, we will have the opportunity to showcase our mineral resources potential, and also highlight the opportunity that is arising in sectors such as agriculture, infrastructure, tourism, health and education.
“There is a lot to be said about the economic potential of Papua New Guinea and the world is starting to take notice.
“Capital is being invested in Papua New Guinea and this is creating jobs for our people.
“Papua New Guinea is open for business and we will continue to deliver new business and new jobs for the nation.”
