Papua New Guinea is one of the leading coconut producer nations.
Coconut production plays an important role in the country’s economy, with the coconut trade being a major source of export revenue.
However, production is generally concentrated in medium-sized farms.
Business PNG spoke to farmers from the Abau District about the benefits and challenges of Coconut production.
Also on the show, we feature Ernestine Maxtone-Graham, an entrepreneur and SME owner.
