Business Delegation to Kokopo; Lae and Port Moresby 3-12 October 2022
The recent visit to Papua New Guinea by the Tradelinked business delegation was well received in Kokopo, Lae and Port Moresby. The visit over a 10 day period (3-12 October) has been deemed a success by those who participated. Twelve businesses/organisations met with key business and government leaders via a series of business breakfasts, industry visits and networking events. Two participating organisations were partly sponsored by the Cairns Regional Council as not for profit organisations with ties to PNG and Cairns.
Four of the participants have already made arrangements for their next visit in-market and all have contacts and leads to follow up. Business briefings were provided by Wafi-Golpu; Westpac Bank; Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC); Austrade; Australian High Commission, Lae and Port Moresby Chambers of Commerce. Tradelinked was fortunate to have great partners on the ground who made our visit to PNG so much more. Many thanks to Simon Foo – Kokopo Beach Bungalow Resort; Consul-General Lae – Mark Foxe; Senior Trade Commissioner Port Moresby – Adrian Weeks and the Lae and Port Moresby Chambers of Commerce. We look forward to reciprocal visits to Cairns in 2023.
