Investment body on campaign to educate

The Investment Promotion Authority (IPA) is on a drive to create awareness about its role and functions.

IPA is a statutory government body that governs  the laws of doing business and also markets the country to potential investors.

IPA and the  PNG Media Council are co-hosting a two day workshop in Port Moresby, bringing together other government bodies and journalists.

The workshop started today.

Collaborations by all stakeholders are  important to promote business in the country, says IPA chairman Leon Busken.

The workshop objective is to create awareness, stimulate discussions and initiate policy action for harnessing economic growth.

The presentations and interactive sessions are on the  various roles and responsibilities of the IPA.

Also issues affecting the ease of doing business and the investment climate in the country will be discussed.
