Papua New Guinea: Tap into agri-tourism: NGCB

The recent 62nd National Gaming Control Board (NGCB) Goroka Show has displayed a huge potential in agri-tourism.

This was revealed by the NGCB Community Benefit Fund Director, Rayleen Kurua.

Kurua said the Show illustrated the potential Eastern Highlands has to successfully promote the agriculture and tourism sectors in the country.

“Tourists will want to spend money to come to PNG if they can experience locals preparing food using indigenous crops,” she said.

“Agriculture and tourism will have to work together and embrace the opportunity which will benefit both industries, the economy and the local community.”

Kurua said there is a great demand for agricultural tourism in PNG and it will be a missed opportunity if we do not work together to build the industry.

The show took place over the Independence weekend, from the 14th to the 16th of September at the National Sports Institute in Goroka under the theme ‘promoting agriculture and tourism’.

About 150 cultural groups from all four regions of the country participated in singsing.
