Your best business development ideas in Papua New Guinea

Hi everyone,

As a foreign entrepreneur, launching a business in Papua New Guinea is a fantastic project and an exciting challenge. Some ideas are likely to succeed. Some others are promising but may not work as well as intended.

In your opinion, what kind of business or industry is likely to succeed in Papua New Guinea? What kind of industry or service currently unavailable or underdeveloped in the country would meet local needs?

On the other hand, what are the most common business types foreign entrepreneurs would be eager to launch in the country but with very little chance of success?

Thank you for your insights.

I think manufacturing industry is one area one can explore.


I  do not want to be optimistic, there fore I think of   a small business like coconut fibre industry. There are simple machines  available to get coconut fibre. Then Coir industry Mats, coconut shell products, Charcoal etc.

Priscilla , If you want to have a partner in business in PNG then let me know. Many ideas can be thought of but business is business and giving a idea away is not something anyone does.

I think you have a point there.
