Papua New Guinea Agritourism Policy Setting Workshop 2018
October 2, 2018 - October 3, 2018
A two-day workshop under the theme of ” Policy Setting for Improved Linkages Between Agriculture, Trade and Tourism: Strengthening the Local Agrifood sector and Promoting Healthy Food in Papua New Guinea” will take place in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, from 2-3 October 2018.
The objective of the agritourism project is to promote sustainable use of local food by the tourism industry through a favourable agritourism policy in Papua New Guinea. It brings together all key stakeholders in the agriculture, tourism, trade and health sectors, including government ministries, agribusinesses, agro-producers, chefs, farmers’ organisations and technical organisations, with the aim of developing further linkages between agriculture, trade and tourism sectors to support local businesses in serving tourism-related markets in Papua New Guinea.
The workshop is organised by the Government of Papua New Guinea in collaboration with CTA, the Pacific Island Private Sector Organisation (PIPSO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the South Pacific Tourism Organisation (SPTO), and the Pacific Community (SPC).
