Digital Government Plan

The Digital Government Plan 2023 -2027 (‘the Plan’) has been approved by National Executive Council.

The  Plan leads on from the ICT Roadmap 2018, the PNG Digital Transformation Policy 2020 and the Digital Government Act 2022.
The Plan proposes to digitize and automate all of public service and make services:

1. Fast, simple and clear for the people;

2. Transparent and efficient by government;

3. Increase government revenue generation through the uptake of SME and foreign direct investments; and

4. Grow the digital economy 

Draft Media Development Policy

The purpose of this policy is to outline the objectives and strategies for the use of media as a tool for development, such as the promotion of democracy, good governance, human rights, and social and economic development.

The Government recognises the role of media for a democratic society and as such, this policy is designed to conform to international norms and standards on freedom of expression, press freedom, and the protection of journalists, and should be designed to balance these rights with the need to protect the rights of others, such as privacy, security, and public order.
