Welcome to The Papua New Guinea APEC Study Centre (PNG ASC) web page.
The PNG ASC was officially opened on the 9th of October 2018 as part of PNG’s commitment to hosting the APEC 2018.
The PNG ASC’s goal is to support world class research and advocate for policy which strengthens access to social and economic opportunities for all across PNG and the APEC region.
The PNG ASC will aim to challenge established norms and promote evidence-based decision-making across public-policy in PNG and the APEC region.
The PNG ASC was established in February 2017 through a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the PNG Government’s National Economic Council (NEC) and the PNG NRI.
The PNG ASC is located at PNG National Research Institute campus in Port Moresby.
The PNG ASC is part of a growing consortium of APEC study centres providing research and policy support to APEC.
