Manau said this while addressing the Chamber of Mines and Petroleum workshop in Port Moresby recently.
 
Manau told delegates that new policy would create an office as well to look at the practical aspects of delivering added national content, The National newspaper reported.
 
"If successful, a national content policy intervention may increase national job creating, boost the domestic private sector businesses, facilitate technology transfer and build a competitive national workforce," he said.
 
"National content in the petroleum sector should firstly aim at the landowners who give access for the investors licences to gain access into their regions to operate. And the circle spreads to the local level, district, provincial and the national level."
