Among others, it provides employment, raises the Country’s profile, supports SMEs all while providing other spin-off benefits. Take a look at these highlights captured in this edition of Women’s World.
The PNG Fashion Week aimed captured different ways that people can be creative. It featured innovative talent that can help boost the economy, while promoting the positive aspects of PNG culture to the world. In this segment we feature lines from PNG Designer Annette Sete’s brand “Hot Lava” and “Wal Takwa – Pukpuk Meri”.
Also on this edition, PNG Coffee!
Coffee continues to be an important export commodity for Papua New Guinea. The Coffee Industry Corporation in PNG has realised the importance of promoting PNG Coffee more aggressively, to maintain its place in existing markets as well as to break into new emerging markets.
Rose Romalus, who originates from the Duke of York Island in East New Britain, is one of the key players in the industry who has contributed to in achieving the government’s socio economic goals.
Apart from other female cuppers in the country, Rose is the only female Quality Controller in the Coffee Industry, who does the last quality check to PNG’s coffee before it is exported overseas.
