The EU-funded Trade Related Assistance Programme (EU-TRA2) is providing the Government of Papua
New Guinea with Technical Assistance to develop critical Electronic Transactions legislation. The TRA2
project, being implemented by the Trade Division of the Department of Commerce and Industry, has
engaged international trade lawyer, Ms Irina Kireeva to spend almost two months working with
government and all relevant stakeholders for the drafting of this important legislation.
The Government launched the first National Trade Policy (NTP) 2017-2032 last year and as part of the
implementation of this policy, the Trade Division, in collaboration with the Ministry of Justice and Attorney
General (DJAG), through the Constitutional Law Reform Commission, will be drafting the legislation.
