Export Markets in the Americas
Papua New Guinea (PNG) exports a variety of goods to countries in the Americas, including oil, gold, copper, coffee, cocoa, and timber. The main markets for PNG’s exports in the Americas are the United States, Canada, and Mexico. PNG also imports a range of goods from countries in the Americas, including machinery, transport equipment, and manufactured goods. The main sources of PNG’s imports from the Americas are Australia, Singapore, and the United States.
In addition to exporting and importing goods, PNG also has trade agreements with several countries in the Americas. For example, PNG is a member of the Melanesian Spearhead Group, which has a trade agreement with the Pacific Alliance (a regional trade bloc comprising Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru) known as the “Pacific Alliance-MSG Free Trade Agreement.” This agreement provides for the gradual liberalization of trade between the Pacific Alliance and the Melanesian Spearhead Group, with the aim of promoting economic development and improving living standards in the region.
