Grow PNG - Grow Asia’s newest Country Partnership - was launched in 2019, bringing together business leaders, policy makers and farmers to unlock sector growth, supporting new livelihood opportunities for farming families.
Grow PNG is based in Lae Papua New Guinea: the gateway to the Markham Valley agricultural corridor. The corridor is on a pathway to rapid agricultural sector expansion driven by a range of crops including palm oil, rice, cassava and sorghum. While much of the corridor’s agricultural potential remains untapped, a growing local population and demand from Asia has created the potential for significant expansion. The team will work with a range of sector stakeholders on issues from land titling to infrastructure needs and skills development.
