India in talks to help Papua New Guinea

 INDIA is emerging as a leading global service provider and looks to enlarge its market in PNG, an official says.
The High Commission of India held a business seminar yesterday bringing together Indian professionals to discuss how their country could provide services to PNG.
Among them were Mineral Resource Authority Chief Inspector of Mines Mohan Singh, Pacific International Hospital medical director Paul Alexander and UPNG Pro-Vice Chancellor Subba Rao.
Singh said the need for technical and professional training in PNG in the mining sector as the country’s human resource was insufficient to manage its large mineral resource industry.
“Here we cannot bring enough trainees up to a standard that can regulate and manage these numerous projects,” he said.
He said one area where India could contribute was world class training institutes at low costs.
India, ranked seventh largest player in the global services trade by the World Trade Organisation, boasts cost-effectiveness which is an attractive factor for PNG.
Alexander said PNG was missing out on affordable medical care in India as opposed to other countries because of a lack of awareness. 
IT specialist Bernard George said India’s proficiency was in customising products to suit certain situations.
