And it has taken off, according to PNG Report's publisher, Aspermont.
"I can happily say that things are going well.  From a business point of view, readers will be pleased to hear that a company search for listings - or key words - often includes listings on the first page of Google, which is the most prominent place to be and the main reason why the free directory is so popular," said Aspermont general manager Sean McKeown. 
"What all this really means is that a lot of people are using the directory to find PNG businesses.  Not a day goes by that we don't see people making contact with those businesses listed to inquire about services or in many cases receive quotes. Many businesses will have heard from us as we pass these leads on."
With APEC - see - being held in PNG, next year it is a good time to refresh your listing by updating your details and any other information that you think might be useful.  If you have already claimed your listing then it is as simple as logging in and doing this here:
If you haven't yet claimed your listing then this can be done by following the below instructions:
• Visit and search for your company name in the top left search box.
• Once your listing comes up you will notice at the bottom of the listing there are the words Is this your listing?  Click this and you will then be taken to a page where you can register as the owner of your company listing.
Once you've registered you will be able to make changes to your listing at any time.
"With around 10,000 people visiting PNG for APEC, including many world leaders, we'd like to remind you of the opportunity to promote your business through a premium listing in the directory, which carries your business into the popular PNG Report magazine that is widely distributed throughout the country.
"With APEC-related events starting from December we'll also be running a series of special APEC features that will look at key sectors of the economy and those businesses at the forefront.   We expect that these special editions will be of much interest to those visiting for APEC," McKeown said.
A premium listing, including a presence in the magazine is $A600 per year, and more information can be found at
As always, we'd love to hear from you, and if you have a something to add for our special APEC features looking at mining, oil and gas, community and agriculture then please get in touch at
