The Governor believes that this breakthrough technology is a vital stepping stone in the country’s development.
More details about this partnership will be revealed at an official press launch on July 3rd where the Governor will make several major announcements.
Blockchain Technology is taking the digital world by storm with its applications in digital currencies, ledger structures, decentralised identity, markets, and basically any working system or information that can be stored and operated via this decentralised database.
The application of this technology in systems of governance and service delivery throughout Papua New Guinea will provide levels of efficiency and transparency which are currently desperately lacking in the country.
Governor Parkop and Blockchain Pasifik envision Port Moresby as a progressive city in the Pacific taking the lead with such front-line technology.
Blockchain Pasifik is looking to bring together experts in fields ranging from banking and digital commerce to combating corruption, from PNG and abroad to the nation’s capital in a two day event which will formally introduce Blockchain technology and its many benefits to Papua New Guinea.
The initiative is driven by a fully Papua New Guinean team headed by Team Leader Rex Paura.
Governor Parkop handed over an initial donation to committee member Cybele Druma earlier this week.
