Agriculture in Papua New Guinea accounts for 25% of the country’s gross domestic product and provides direct benefits to over 80% of the population. Cash crops ranked by value are coffee, oil, cocoa, copra, tea, rubber and sugar.

The PHAMA Program was launched in PNG in 2015 with a focus on improving market access for the country’s key export industries and to promote industry coordination through the establishment of industry working groups or IWGs.

In November 2018, the program transitioned to a third phase now known as PHAMA Plus which will run through to June 2022. Priority areas identified for PHAMA Plus’ support in PNG are cocoa, coffee, high-value coconut products and fisheries. 

PHAMA Plus will also support work on identified thematic and cross-cutting issues.
