The National, Thursday July 25th, 2013

 THE 2013 PNG Advantage investment summit, the country’s only annual investment event, will take place on Sept 9 and 10 at the Gateway Hotel, Port Moresby.

Papua New Guinea has never been more in the international spotlight, for a variety of reasons.

But one thing that can be forgotten amid the headlines is that PNG has been one of the world’s fastest-growing economies over the past decade.

There’s never been a better time to discover the wealth of business and investment opportunities the country has to offer.

The summit programme features high calibre speakers ranging from Prime Minister Peter O’Neill to international guests such as the renowned ‘Airport Economist’ Tim Harcourt, former Australian Liberal Party leader John Hewson and Nestlé Pacific Islands’ Eugene David, and local business leaders such as BSP’s chief executive Robin Fleming and CPL Group/Telikom PNG chairman Mahesh Patel.

The two-day event, including an official delegates’ dinner, will cover a broad range of topics of interest to investors and business people, with a mix of keynote presentations, panel discussions, and question-and-answer sessions. –  Business Advantage
