Outgoing chairman of the Australia Papua New Guinea Business Council, Peter Taylor, is delighted at success of the 30th Annual Australia Papua New Guinea forum, and has shared some thoughts about his time on the council.
The two day event held in Cairns, Australia, included a trade expo where Australian and PNG companies marketed their goods and services.
The Expo, and council meeting, concluded yesterday afternoon with a record attendance, signifying the continuous bond between the two countries.
The 30th annual Australia-PNG business forum was hailed a success with record attendance from public and private sector professionals. This was according to former president of the APNG Business Council, Peter Taylor.
Mr. Taylor, who relinquished his three year title yesterday, spoke highly of the event, saying the council had achieved the objectives they had set for the event.
During his time as chairman of the APNG forum, Mr. Taylor was a vocal opponent of the government’s recent ban of the visa on arrival for Australian citizens.
He stated that though it may not severely affect business between the two countries, the government should be making avenues for business and investment, easier, rather than taking facilities away.
Retiring from his chairmanship, Mr. Taylor is confident that his time with the council has yielded good results.
