While Papua New Guinea’s economy remains dominated by the agriculture, fisheries, forestry and extractives industries, tourism has been identified by government actors as an important source of economic diversification and sustainable development. With around 462,840 sq km of largely untouched land, a wide variety of indigenous flora and fauna, and immense cultural diversity as evidenced by its 852 known languages, PNG has promising tourism potential.
