Construction & Real Estate

Papua New Guinea Construction and Real Estate

Building on the momentum generated by the successful launch of the Papua New Guinea Liquefied Natural Gas project, the government continues to take the lead in stimulating construction activity in PNG, with various opportunities across the board from ports and road projects to a range of residential and commercial developments open to both domestic and foreign companies for participation and investment. With only 3% of land available to the government to build on and develop, the real estate sector in Papua New Guinea operates in a unique environment. Despite the majority of land being under customary ownership, with ownership rights held by extended family groups, there are still a number of opportunities for foreign investors and development in the sector, with more on the horizon if government-backed legislation, currently pending, opens up more of PNG’s land for development.

This chapter contains interviews with Dominic Avenell, Managing Director, Avenell Engineering Systems; Gudmundur Fridriksson, CEO, Paga Hill Estate; and Frank Kramer, CEO, Kramer Ausenco.
