Dominant Industry Player Levy

CEO of Digicel PNG, Colin Stone, has highlighted that Digicel PNG achieved its market position through sizeable investment of over US$1 Billion in infrastructure across all of PNG’s 89 Districts since launching in 2007. ‘We are proud of our enviable record of connecting more Papua New Guineans with each other, and the world, than any other operator in the market’ Stone said.  ‘It appears to us that the Proposed Levy is an attempt to undermine the nation’s progress in this regard.

In 1980 when Kamea Construction went down to Gulf province to build a road to Kaintiba, Menyamya, and Aseki, there was a Miss PNG Quest sponsored by Kamea Construction in 1985 which I entered. I was selected as Miss Kamea Construction for Miss PNG, but it didn’t progress because the Kamea Construction work broke down. So I took a typing course with the Commerce Department and after 6 months I received my certificate. My first job was with Ilawa Inn Hotel in Kerema town, as a receptionist. I worked for two years under an Australian called Don Bird.

Before I came to Digicel I used to sell betelnut and smoke at Rainbow market, to take care of my three boys.

One day while I was at my market table a lady by the name of Winifred came by. She was one of my buai customers. While we chatted, she told me that she was a working at Digicel and she was the Facilities Manager so I asked if there are any jobs with (Digicel) Facilities and she said there was, so I came to work here. It’s been almost 8 years since I started.
