The annual PNG Update is the premier forum for the discussion of research and analysis relating to contemporary economic and public policy issues in PNG. Organised by the University of Papua New Guinea’s School of Business and Public Policy and the ANU Development Policy Centre, the 2016 PNG Update will feature presentations in three parallel sessions at several venues across the University of Papua New Guinea (Waigani Campus), Port Moresby.

The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Sustaining development beyond the resources boom’.
