In this edition as the country celebrates 48 years of nationhood, we turn our attention to discuss key areas of interest across the business and investment sectors. Enhancing Fixed Asset Management remains challenging in both the public and private sectors in Papua New Guinea as the economy grows. We take a deep dive into Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and what that entails in the digital landscape transformation taking place.

We have the latest updates on the work permit process and we close out this month with commentary on the PNG Takeovers and Mergers Code that became effective in June 2023 as part of the Capital Markets reform.
