The Papua New Guinea Expo2020 team in Dubai successfully delivered the first investment forum to the global audience in collaboration with the team back at the APEC Haus in Port Moresby.
The Investment Forum is the first of a series of investment roundtable talks that will be hosted along the margins of the Dubai World Expo in the coming months. The investment forums are aimed at presenting the investment profile of Papua New Guinea to specific concerted audience for investment, trade and tourism purposes as well as to raise the visibility of Papua New Guinea as many people do not know about the country.
In the first part of the program, PNG Regulatory Agencies such as the Investment Promotion Authority, Internal Revenue Commission, Immigration and Citizenship Authority and the National Court of Justice presented on the laws that govern the investment arena of Papua New Guinea as well as the investment incentives available to investors. The National Forest Authority also presented on Government policies and initiatives in the Forestry sector and environment sustainability.
Also included in the list of presenters was the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Click Media Companies in the UAE Ms. Noha Jaheen.
Ms. Jaheen spoke about the company’s goal in increasing investments through the shift in the normal investment promotion efforts by individual countries to connecting markets through e-commerce media.
Click Media has embarked on a project to link all markets through their media platform to enable trade and investment to progress. This is the shift in market connection which they had developed and are promoting to other countries during the Dubai World Expo.
The second investment forum will be held in November with specific focus on the value chain in the manufacturing sector especially in agro industries, food and beverages and other downstream processing opportunities, including production promotion and expansion.
Papua New Guinea is located in the South Pacific, north of Australia and is the second largest island in the world. PNG has an area cover of around 462,840 square kilometres.

Its geography is also diversed, mostly characterized by high mountain ranges, deep valleys, rivers, plains, tropical forests, swampy inlets as well as low lying islands, including the Bismark Archipelago Islands.
