The PNG Tourism Promotion Authority is still encouraging travellers from all around the world to come to PNG.

This was made known at the beginning of this month at the week-long roadshow, The Treasures of the Pacific, a tourism-focused event held in many Australian cities, including Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, and Sydney.

Alice Kuaningi, the marketing director for TPA in PNG, and Simon Dari Pih, the marketing officer, participated in the roadshow, which began in Brisbane and finished in Sydney a fortnight ago.

Richard Skewes, the host event organiser, was pleased with how PNG was represented at the occasion and said that it was nice to see PNG participating in the road show with other Pacific Nations.

“This is the first time in two years to showcase in person all of the South Pacific Products and its treasurers and is possibly be the first time in a long time PNG actually came out with its representatives unlike others which is wonderful,” Mr Skewes said.

According to him, this is a yearly event that aims to enlighten and educate travel agents on travel and tourism in other nations.

“More importantly to tell the people around the world that the Pacific Island countries are now open to receive tourists and people alike that needed time and break away from all that is happening around them,” Ms said.

Travel brokers were told by Ms Kuaningi that PNG is a fascinating nation that may make a vacation trip unforgettable.

“It was short timing to show and tell the World about our beautiful country but they were all impressed,” Ms Kuaninigi said.

“Our primary objective is to come out here and inform our partners that our borders have opened up, we are now ready to receive tourists again.”

Mr Skewes said: “It is important to start conversing with the travel trade partners and convince them that PNG is ready to receive tourists after the long delay caused by COVID-19 travel restrictions.

“Our tourism operators, hotels and airlines depend on business and leisure travellers to keep their business operating.”
