Event Details


The PNG economy has been struggling since 2015, but is it showing signs of recovery and growth? What are the prospects for the coming years?

The PNG Economic Survey is an annual report on the Papua New Guinea economy jointly produced by Australian National University and University of Papua New Guinea academics. The survey provides an analysis of the latest developments in the PNG economy. In this public seminar, the authors of the survey – Rohan Fox, Maholopa Lavei, Bao Nguyen, Dek Sum and Stephen Howes — will present their findings and analysis. With a new Prime Minister, James Marape, taking power in May 2019, the survey also examines the economic and governance challenges facing PNG’s new leader and his Cabinet.

This seminar is presented as part of the Development Policy Centre’s PNG Project, which receives funding from the Australian Aid Program through the Pacific Governance and Leadership Precinct, and the Asia and the Pacific Policy Studies journal.
