20150908 Coffey staff reflect on PNGs 40 years of independence 370x298

Coffey has kicked off a special series of staff profiles to mark Papua New Guinea’s (PNG) celebration of 40 years of independence next week.

The country will officially mark this significant milestone on 16 September, after achieving independence from Australia in 1975.

Coffey has worked in PNG for 40 years, delivering a range of international development programs, particularly in public sector and education programs.

We’ve also delivered geotechnical and environmental services to the mining and oil and gas industries.

We’re marking the milestone by profiling the experiences of our people working in PNG during this time.

Coffey’s Justice Gua works in the international development industry as the PNG Incentive Fund Phase IV Deputy Team Leader, and today talked about working with Coffey in PNG over the last seven years.

“As a Papua New Guinean, I see a great future for PNG,” he said.

“Working with our partners – the Australian and PNG governments – means Coffey can continue to do its good work in improving services to the people across the country.”

Coffey will profile staff from across its operations on their experience working in PNG in the lead up to 16 September.
