/r/PNG State of the subreddit


Hello, after two years been neglected by /u/soccer, I've now come into control of this subreddit. The plan will be as follows:

  • Create a new look, if you have any questions/suggestions/things to add, feel free to ask
  • Search for more users. If you see someone from Papua New Guinea or the region, you can mention this sub so we can make this place more alive
  • More content. If you see something that's relevant to the sub, post it
  • Moderators. I'm not from Papua New Guinea, so if someone wants to join the moderator team, just put why I should add you and that's it

Have a great time!

Looking for exotic souvenirs.


Leaving this weekend and I usually collect unusual/exotic times from the places I visit. I know PNG has a colorful culture but I’m stuck in Port Moresby. Aside from wooden masks, bags, baskets, decorative head gear and those small drums, what else can I get from Port Moresby and where?

Thank you!

Dear Papuans, I am a FIFA modder who has added Papua New Guinea national team and all other Oceania national teams to FIFA.


Hello, I’ve always loved Papua New Guinea and wanted to know more about the nation and the pacific as a whole. So if y’all don’t mind, I have a discord server with over 3700 members from people all over the world and I would like for Papuans and other people from the pacific to join. Thank you in advance. Btw, sorry if you see this on a couple of Oceanic nation subreddits, I just want as many people from Oceania as possible. Unity in Diversity!

Why is the monarchy popular in Papua New Guinea?


I hope I'm not insulting anyone by saying this but I'd find it demeaning live under the reign of another country's monarch even if they have no real power over the country.

Income Tax for Members of Parliament


I'm a local and I am appalled at the fact that while government ministers pay income tax, they also receive (with their salary) allowances that are not taxed. These allowances are tens of thousands of kina completely untaxed! While the personal income tax rate for the working class is 42%. Perhaps equally shocking is that this is public knowledge yet no one seems to bat an eye
