Papua New Guinea has great potential through its natural resources (land, cash crops, forests, fisheries, minerals, oil and gas) to improve its socioeconomic development status. Equally important are other areas that can contribute to economic growth and better living standards for the people, including human capital development, improved infrastructure networks, and an efficient service delivery mechanism for public goods and services.
These areas underscore the underlying theme that drives Vision 2050 and the development agenda for Papua New Guinea. Vision 2050 sets the overall direction for the country to attain our dream to be a Smart, Wise, Fair, Healthy, and Happy Society by 2050. This means that by 2050, we as a people, will reward excellence and reach high standards of innovativeness. We will also be healthy, wealthy, and safe.
Our institutions will practice and uphold higher standards of transparency, accountability, and good governance. In addition, our people and government will contribute more effectively to the social and economic well-being of our beautiful nation.
