How much is the industry contributing to Papua New Guinea?
Papua New Guinea’s future is at the crossroads with the Government considering a range of changes to the Mining Act that will deter investment in long-term mining projects and jeopardise the future success of PNG’s small businesses and citizens.
Papua New Guinea’s petroleum and mining companies have a proud record in corporate social responsibility, inclusive of regular and well documented payment of taxes and royalties to the National Government and other stakeholders.
