PETROMIN employees have been urged to be innovative when discharging their responsibilities.
Managing director Joshua Kalinoe said seeking new ideas and bringing in innovative methods and systems of doing business were important if Petromin was to successfully deliver on its mandate as being Papua New Guinea’s national oil, gas and minerals company.
Kalinoe spoke during the company’s Independence Day luncheon last week.
“Success comes with competitiveness and competitiveness means we all must be seeking out new and innovative ways of doing business.
“Let us not be complacent with what we are doing. Instead we should be asking questions and seeking new ideas that would bring the future to ourselves,” Kalinoe said.
He reminded the staff about what they could do for the country instead of depending on what the country could do for them.
“No one will create our future and that of our children except ourselves.
“So be innovative in what you do by looking to the future and doing things together, with your colleagues and other stakeholders to position Petromin to create the future for the current and future generations of Papua New Guineans,” Kalinoe added.
Petroleum minister William Duma, who cut the Independence Day cake, told staff to work hard so that Petromin can deliver on its mandate.
