» read speech by The Treasurer of Papua New Guinea, The Hon. Ian Ling Stuckey

Consistent data on the Papua New Guinea economy back to independence is sparse. To fill this gap, the ANU-UPNG partnership has created the PNG Economic Database. This online database contains economic data for PNG back to independence, with more than 160 series.

The database was launched by the Treasurer of PNG Ian Ling-Stuckey at the University of Papua New Guinea.

The PNG Economic Database is a project of the partnership between the ANU Crawford School of Public Policy and the UPNG School of Business and Public Policy. We gratefully acknowledge funding from the PNGAus Partnership.
