The beautiful Madang Province shares the name of its township Madang and is once known to be the ‘Pearl of the South Pacific’. Over the years, Madang’s economy was mainly dependant on copra, cocoa, timber, fishing and tourism. Today, with the new developments taking place such as the proposed Pacific Marine Industrial Zone at Vidar as well as the RD Tuna Cannery, new mining companies like Ramu-Nico, and proposed Mareengo Mine at Yandera, Madang province is said to become a major economic centre in PNG with estimated three billion already spent or due to be spent in the coming years.
Madang has become a major educational centre and is home to numerous tertiary institutions including Divine Word University, Madang Technical School, the College of Allied Health Science, the Lutheran School of Nursing, PNG Maritime College, Institute of Medical Research, Madang Teachers College and Modilon Hospital is expected to become a teaching hospital.
Madang is also home to expatriates and various NGOs including World Vision, Save the Children, Voluntary Service Overseas, Pathfinder International, and has more visitors travelling to the province every year.
