The Lowy Institute, together with the Asia Pacific Professionals Association Ltd, hosted a panel discussion exploring gender parity issues in Papua New Guinea, where women face many significant challenges. High-profile speakers from Papua New Guinea and Australia discussed how the private sector can increase the diversity of the work force and expand the opportunities available to women within the changing commercial and social environment of Papua New Guinea – the fastest growing economy in the world in 2015. International evidence shows that investing in women and girls produces higher economic growth and better living standards in developing countries. The panel speakers provided perspectives from their specific industry sector and identify the steps that have been taken to address gender parity issues, as well as what more could be done. The sectors represented include law, education, energy and resources, banking and commerce. The Lowy Institute’s Melanesia Program Director, Jenny Hayward-Jones, chaired the discussion.
