PNG Chamber of Resources & Energy (PNG CORE)

PNG CORE is committed to supporting and promoting the minerals and energy industries, as well as related sectors, in Papua New Guinea. 

We are focused on fostering progress and sustainable practices, aiming to be a leading voice and key contributor to the responsible growth of these important industries.


The Papua New Guinea Chamber of Resources & Energy is deeply committed to community development. Are you involved in a project that seeks to enhance the community where you work or reside? Alternatively, if you’re searching for impactful community initiatives to support, we are eager to connect with you. 


Papua New Guinea’s economy is deeply dependent on its resource sector, more so than in any other resource-rich regions. The country’s mineral and energy industries make substantial direct and indirect contributions to government revenues. Additionally, these industries provide extensive socio-economic advantages to the people of Papua New Guinea. 


Founded in 1987, the Chamber has earned widespread respect over its more than 30 years of development. This respect comes from the broader business community, civil society, the industry itself, and the Government.
