Rural women farmers in Papua New Guinea have been invited to Darwin in Australia in September to attend important events organised by Australian counterparts on promoting rural industries.

President of the PNG Women in Agriculture Development Foundation (PNGWiADF), Maria Linibi, called on registered members of her organisation to prepare to travel down south as there would be a lot of opportunities for information sharing, training and networking with members of the Australian Women in Agriculture (AWiA).

 Linibi said AWiA had officially invited members of the PNGWiADF to participate in the joint national conference and annual general meeting of AWiA and Women’s Industry Network Seafood Community which will take place during September 10-12 in Darwin.

The three-day event will focus on promoting and advancing the interests of rural, remote and regional women in agriculture, forestry and fisheries.

Among the highlights will be exhibitions of rare fruits, forestry, crocodiles, barramundi, Thai market gardens, live cattle exports, fish markets and displays of indigenous culture and agricultural produce.

Participants will also attend training, workshops, meetings, site tours and other functions.

Those interested can contact Linibi on mobile (675) 72765001 and email or Roselyn Winston on (675) 72867431 and
