Invest more in PNG: Yama

Madang Governor Peter Yama has called on the APEC Senior Financial Official’s delegates to invest more in the country as their investment will be gaining profits in the future.

Speaking as the host of the gala dinner last night at the Madang Resort, Yama said PNG economy will be picking up from where it is today in the near future.

Governor Yama told delegates that SME sector is one of the key priority areas the Government is embarking on for the people.

He said such initiative will boost the economic growth in rural areas where the large population of PNG’s people live.

Yama told delegates that they have made the right choice to come to Madang as it is very unique and beautiful, apart from other provinces.

He said more than a quarter of PNG’s culture can be found in Madang.

Meantime, the outcomes from the financial inclusion seminar and Senior Finance Officials’ Meeting will inform preparations for the APEC Finance Ministers’ Meeting, which will be held in Port Moresby in mid-October of 2018.
