In this month’s edition, my first one since receiving the baton from Zanie, we focus the spotlight on risk in the insurance sector, a very topical matter in the PNG landscape given the importance of the local insurance industry.   We also provide a more detailed update on certain aspects of the IPA Data Migration that is underway in 2023. 

We highlight IRC’s signing of an MOU with the Bank South Pacific on critical information sharing and share some positive news on the proposed re-activation of the Multiple Entry Short Term Business Visa.

In the coming editions we will continue to bring to you further insights on our service offerings and market intelligence on a range of topics to keep you up to speed with developments in the market. So watch this space.

KPMG in PNG has dedicated in-house specialists in all the following areas: internal audit/risk, visa migration, corporate finance, management consulting, IT advisory, fraud investigation as well as tax and assurance. As such we are well placed to provide a truly multi-disciplined approach to business advisory.
