‘This is the second time the Innovation PNG Awards have been run and we had almost double the number of entries this time,’ said Chair of the awards judging panel, Dr Jane Thomason. ‘Of these, just over half were from small businesses, which is a very encouraging sign.’

‘The range of innovations covered by the entries was nothing short of breathtaking. The judges would like to congratulate all those who entered the awards. We look forward to announcing the winners next week.’

The Innovation PNG Awards are designed to reward and encourage innovation – creative problem-solving using new ideas – in business and government.

‘The digital economy is an important opportunity for PNG’s future and the quality of applicants show that many are already seizing this potential. It augurs well for the digital future,’ said Jane Thomason.
