Over 100 UK companies seek PNG partners

Over 100 United Kingdom companies are seeking business partners in Papua New Guinea.

UK Exporters Ltd, a Bristol-based company that runs a database of over 18,500 UK exporters, has listed 136 companies that are looking for business partners in PNG.

They are generally seeking new business, agents and distributors or are hoping to add to their customer-base in the region.

The companies range from manufacturers of fuel flow modulators and cleaning chemicals to chocolate and biscuit makers.

Each UK company listed has a direct link to their company profile which show all the products or services they are offering.

Each individual company may be contacted direct from their company profile which includes their e-mail and web addresses.

Interested PNG companies can access their details from the UK Exporters Ltd website or via the British High Commission Website

The UK companies’ interest in business opportunities in PNG follows the recent announcement by the London and Port Moresby Stock Exchange-listed New Britain Palm Oil (NBPOL) to build a £18 million (K68 million) palm oil processing facility in the UK.

UK High Commissioner to PNG, David Dunn, said that whilst the world was experiencing a global trade downturn the interest in PNG showed by UK companies was an indication of the strong and growing commercial relationship between the two countries.

“The NBPOL investment is excellent news for the UK and is a further indication of the deepening commercial relationship between the two countries. The UK is PNG's fourth largest commercial partner and the clear destination of choice for PNG inward investment to Europe,” he added.

Copies of the UK Exporters List for PNG have also been passed on to the PNG Investment Promotion Authority (IPA).
