We are committed to working collaboratively and transparently with government in our relevant jurisdictions.

Newcrest took the opportunity to demonstrate our work towards sustainable and inclusive growth in PNG to a global audience through our platinum sponsorship of the 2018 APEC Summit held in Port Moresby.

Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Sandeep Biswas led our participation in APEC Leaders Week, which included ministerial meetings, the CEO Summit, the Youth Summit, and a meeting of the 21 APEC Leaders. Sandeep spoke about the mining industry’s contribution to sustainable and inclusive growth, using examples from our operations.
  
The sponsorship signaled the strength of our commitment to host nation PNG.

All responsible miners look for ways to partner with host governments to support national development objectives,” said Sandeep. “We have a strong interest in the social and economic development of our host countries. We want to operate in countries that are growing and thriving.”

Several thousand international visitors attended the week in Port Moresby, where the summit also enabled our leaders to meet mining ministers and senior officials from APEC countries to discuss how to maximise the social and economic benefits brought by mining.
