ASIAN DEVELOPMENT BANK MEMBER FACT SHEET :PAPUA NEW GUINEA.
The economy of Papua New Guinea (PNG) is dominated by labor-intensive agriculture and capital-intensive extraction of oil and gas, gold, copper, and silver. Mining and petrochemicals now account for over 25% of PNG’s gross domestic product and over 80% of its exports. The country continues to face signifi cant challenges in making economic growth more inclusive and sustainable. Many areas of service delivery—such as health, education, transport, energy, and water—remain weak, particularly in rural areas.
