Building the Australia-PNG Digital Ecosystem
The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated global digital connectivity, and the Pacific region is witnessing a surge in digital transformations. With increasing internet access, mobile phone usage, and government-led digital initiatives in health, education, and financial data, Papua New Guinea is experiencing a growing digital footprint.
However, there are still challenges to overcome, and Australia can play a pivotal role in supporting PNG’s digital connectivity through investment, capacity building, partnerships, technical assistance, and regional collaboration.
The 2022 Aus-PNG Network Emerging Leaders Dialogue explored these issues and more.
The evening of Tuesday 13 June marked the launch of our Dialogue Outcomes Report, Building the Australia-PNG Digital Ecosystem.
Featured a live panel discussion with Dialogue alumni:
- Jack Growden, Founder & CEO, LiteHaus International, on digital education
- Sarah Bornstein, Global Emergency Care Advisor, on digital innovation in health
- Clare Akauma, Assistant Site Manager, Graincorp, on digital innovation in sport and agricultural development.
