NRI: Need to improve land surveyors’ skills in PNG

PNG National Research Institute (NRI) reports that surveyors contribute greatly to building PNG and have an important role to play in the development of customary land and the development of towns and cities.

PNG NRI Director Dr Charles Yala said it is important for land surveyors to learn about the current state-of-the-art technologies in order to effectively carry out their work.

Dr Yala highlighted that the main challenge faced by surveyors is the type of topography in the country, which requires investment in expensive equipment.
