The mining and petroleum industry in Papua New Guinea is the largest provider of apprenticeship and trades training in the country, says the PNG Chamber of Mines and Petroleum. The Chamber said this following its major sponsorship of 20,000 kina towards the hosting of the 2019 National Apprentice and Trade Testing Candidate of the Year Awards, an annual event which recognises and promotes excellence in apprenticeship, and trade testing in PNG.

How much is the industry contributing to Papua New Guinea?
The Papua New Guinea Chamber of Mines and Petroleum has welcomed Prime Minister James Marape’s statement that successful mining and petroleum projects are crucial to his Government’s vision of greatly expanding the PNG economy and in improving living standards.
The PNG Government must seriously consider the economic implications the revised Mining Act will have on the country. In a statement today in response to the Mining Minister Hon. Johnson Tuke’s statements in Parliament yesterday regarding tabling the revised Act in the current Parliament Sitting, the Chamber urged the Government to seriously consult with the industry to fully understand the impacts some of the proposed amendments would have on future and existing projects.
