PNG Tourism 2012
Given the country’s remoteness from traditional tourist markets, PNG understandably remains a niche market, catering to travellers looking for a truly out-of-bounds experience. PNG’s strategy is not to appeal to the mass market, but to increase its prominence in the adventure tourism sector. One key accomplishment was the passage of a land act that will allow developers to negotiate the use of and purchase native customary land, making hotel building and trekking easier to manage. In addition to the country’s low profile, however, PNG tour operators also have to contend with high airfare prices and crime levels. This chapter contains an interview with Peter Vincent, CEO, Papua New Guinea Tourism Promotion Authority (PNG TPA).
