New President, Mr Robert Nilkare

Robert Nilkare

According to Robert,  for the last four (4) years, the focus of the Council was Port Moresby and as a result so many businessess have thrived, this was the reason why he would like to see other businessess operating in the provinces to have a voice of representation. 

" One of the things that I want to see for the Business Council to do is to move its focus out of Port Moresby and into the provinces."I am saying this because there are other business operating throughout the rest of the country. "There are people out there and they are struggling, there are people out there who have an agricultural standing. "We want to see farmers, the coffee industry, they always do it tough" he said. 

Robert applaud the outgoing President, David Toua for his tireless effort and contribution and looks forward to continue the good works representing businesses on issues concerning the economic , social and political wellbeing of PNG. Robert replaces David Toua, who has held the position for over four (4) years.
