Lowy Institute Conference: Overcoming Constraints in Papua New Guinea

Discussion about Papua New Guinea is too often dominated by fatalistic negativism or impractical calls for far-reaching reform. The Lowy Institute Conference "Overcoming Constraints in Papua New Guinea" took a different approach. We looked at how individuals, groups, corporations and governments are making progress in PNG - despite the obstacles. We aimed to draw out some of the success stories to see what might be learned. The conference identified some ingredients of success and discussed how PNG could best build on, and replicate, positive developments."Overcoming Constraints in Papua New Guinea" was held on 18 February 2005.Lowy Institute for International Policy
