Pacific Marine Industrial Zone (PMIZ) Minimize

The Pacific Marine Industrial Zone (PMIZ) is one of the major Economic Impact Projects, approved by GoPNG, amongst other major work programmes, put in place to support the sustainable development of the fisheries sector.  The project's aim is to promote the development of basic infrastructure and to reduce post harvest losses via the construction of modern fishing port complex in Vidar Plantation - Madang, so as to increase supplies of aquatic products.

The establishment of a Marine Industrial Park should be seen as a handy tool to enhance economics of scale, to benefit all stakeholders by increasing the volume and value of down-streamed processed tuna products and to reduce the exports of whole frozen tuna exports. The project is at its initial stage between the State and RD Group of Companies. Negotiations are concurrent, with the State adamant to get the project off the ground.
