PMIZ Has Potential But Lacks Dialogue

Papua New Guinea’s fishing industry association has warned the vision for PNG to be the tuna hub of the Pacific will be dead, unless action is taken to save it.

The multi-million Kina Pacific Marine Industrial Zone (PMIZ) in Madang is a key part of the vision, but it has seen a delay in construction.

In Manila at the fourteenth Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission, the association said the project has the potential to compete with fisheries-rich nations like Philippines and Vietnam, but lack of dialogue with stakeholders is holding the progress hostage.

According to association treasurer, Fabian Chow, the project is going nowhere fast unless the government of the day speaks to the right people.
