PAPUA New Guinea is fast emerging as a serious contender for international events, says PNG chamber of commerce and industry president John Leahy.
Following the announcement by the Pacific Islands Private Sector Organisation that the 2016 Trade Pasifika event would be held in Port Moresby, Mr Leahy said the show would help bolster a positive image for PNG regionally and lead to greater trade and prosperity.
He said developments in PNG were taking place in the hotel sector as well as the expansion of multi-use sporting facilities for the upcoming Pacific Games.
Trade Pasifika is a biennial trade show of businesses from Pacific island countries.
