Rice Projects

Trukai Industries is committed to assisting Papua New Guinea to increase domestic food production. A major part of the activities of Trukai is devoted to developing local rice production. In particular Trukai seeks to increase the number of smallholder rice producers and accordingly efforts focus on this industry sector.

In addition, Trukai seeks to work with all stakeholders in the promotion of rice production in PNG. These stakeholders include Government Departments (DAL both National and provincial and NARI), Educational Institutions (Unitech and the Universities of Vudal and Goroka as well as high schools) and Aid Agencies (JICA, ROC, OISCA and the ADB). Trukai operates and coordinates the Secretariat for the PNG Technical Advisory Committee on Rice and Grain (TAC), funding the meetings of members of the committee (3 TAC meetings held this year). A major development this year has been the publication of the “Book of Rice in PNG” which was funded by Trukai Industries. This book is a definitive history of rice production in PNG and sets the scene for what is achievable. Any individual who aspires to understand the industry or is involved in policy formulation must read this book.

THE BOOK OF RICE IN PAPUA NEW GUINEA WAS FUNDED BY TRUKAI AND WAS DISRIBUTED TO MAJOR INDUSTRY STAKEHOLDERS. THE BOOK IS AVAILABLE FOR SALE FROM TRUKAI AT K25.00
