O'Neill will make an opening address on the importance of the resource sector to PNG's growth, according to The National.

Chan created fresh sovereign risk fears in August by announcing plans to alter resource ownership laws in PNG.

He will reportedly discuss mining success in PNG and the potential for new projects.

The report did not reveal whether Petroleum and Energy Minister William Duma would make an appearance at the chamber's associated two-day petroleum seminar, which will start on December 1, although Duma was invited.

Chamber executive director Greg Anderson recently told PNGIndustryNews.net the seminars would provide a complete overview of what was happening in PNG and an opportunity to meet with all the players.
