Operator: Tourism must benefit rural communities

Local tour operator in Chimbu Province, Chris Jaime, said tourism remains the only industry where everyone can benefit from.

Jaime operates tours and provides adventure trips for both local and international tourists in Chimbu, including tours for Mt Wilhelm, which is the highest peak in PNG and the Oceania region.

Jaime said people can be involved in Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) to sustain their livelihoods and also contribute to the country’s economy by promoting tourism with their products.
