This paper argues for improved policy choices for growth of incomes as the priority for a reform-minded Papua New Guinea government due to take office following the elections in mid 2007. Amongst the policy initiatives are a committment to improved governance including a campaign to clean up corruption; greater investments in public infrastructure to deepen the trade and cultural bonds between the disparate parts of the nation; concerted efforts at reducing the costs of doing business to raise the level of investment and employment generation; and placement of an arms-length, results-based, evaluations and monitoring framework to track progress on each of the above-mentioned. Some thoughts on the role an active donor community could play are also provided.
