June Online Business Briefing (Free): value adding, vaccines and bank loans


Each month, we chat to a variety of business leaders and experts to get a better understanding of the key issues affecting business in Papua New Guinea. Join us at 10am PGT/AEST (UTC/GMT+10) on Thursday 24 June for our next free online business briefing. We’ll be talking value-adding, vaccines and bank loans.

PNG’s Marape government has called more investment in value-adding and downstream-processing, as the country seeks to create jobs and add value to the commodities it produces. This month, we discuss the challenges of achieving this goal with the CEO of Papua New Guinea’s Manufacturers Council, Chey Scovell.

Also this month, we discuss the progress of PNG’s vaccine rollout with Dr Ann Clark from NGO, Businesses 4 Health. Ann will be giving advice on how to address vaccine hesitancy in the workplace.

Finally, in our ‘Inside View’ segment, we’ll hear from Kina Bank’s Executive General Manager Lending, Asi Nauna. Kina is one of PNG’s largest lenders, with a loan book of around K1.6 billion. What are lending conditions like right now in the country and what do potential businesses need to do to successfully borrow from PNG’s banks?

This month’s guests include:

  • Chey Scovell (CEO, Manufacturers Council of PNG)
  • Dr Ann Clark (Project Manager, Businesses 4 Health Papua New Guinea)
  • Asi Nauna (Executive General Manager Lending, Kina Bank)
