Director General’s Christmas Message

We are approaching another Festive Season and 2023 will pass by in the next few days. On this occasion, I wish to extend our very best wishes and appreciation to all our stakeholders, including the many farmers and farmer groups we have worked with during the course of this year.

  • There has been considerable progress this year and these include: Launch of NARI’s Corporate Plan for the next 10 years
  • Successful hosting of the 12th annual Agricultural Innovations Show on October 18 after a 3-year lapse.
  • Preparation for the roll out plant health program in PNG in collaboration CABI in 2024
  • Development of new projects including the National Cadetship programme to start in 2024
  • Appointment of Director General since it became vacant in 2019

These achievements could not have been possible without the support and commitment of the Government of PNG, Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (ACIAR), the European Union, stakeholders, partners, and staff across all Centres.  We highly appreciate and treasure your commitments and contributions.

We look forward to another good year in 2024 with your continued support and pro-active contributions.

On behalf of the Institute Council and Executive Management, I convey my season’s greetings and best wishes to all staff, your families, partners, and friends, a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2024.

Dr Nelson Simbiken

Director General
