Board Chairman of PNG Ports Corporation Kepas Wali said it was in the hike of covid-19 effects and the country’s economic state that the corporation has worked in.

“2021 was not an easy year as the company dealt with the nation’s current economic conditions, a post-COVID recuperating shipping industry, unstable performances in the overall throughput volumes at the ports.”

“However, with wise financial management and transparent operational practices, PNG Ports has once again proved to be profitable and remain a relevant SOE,” said Wali.

Acting CEO Begley said PNG Ports strives to be a corporation with an excellent collective team effort and the performance of 2022 will be better than the previous year.

Minister William Duma concluded by saying that the Marape Government has trusted its SOE with key board and management who is competent in delivering best results.

And PNG Ports is an example of a performing leadership Board and that is in place to provide excellent performance with a fair dividend paid back to the government.
