New Analysis Captures Challenges of Doing Business in Papua New Guinea

A new ADB/PSDI publication, The Challenges of Doing Business in Papua New Guinea (2014), captures key results from the responses from 130  firms in the 2012 Business Environment Survey conducted by the Papua New Guinea Institute of National Affairs. The analysis provides insights and suggestions for policy makers, and indeed anyone interested in PNG’s development. 
Comparative analysis using data from previous surveys in 2002 and 2007 offers insights into changes in PNG's business environment. These comparisons highlight the impact of the 2011 constitutional crisis, and the acceleration of economic growth since 2007.
