Tūhana has worked with the Autonomous Bougainville Government (ABG) to develop an enabling environment for ‘responsible inward investment’, which meets Bougainville’s cultural, social and economic needs.
Tūhana developed the inward investment policy which was approved by the ABG in 2012, as well as related legislation that was passed by Parliament in 2013. Our team also built the Bougainville Inward Investment Bureau including all its operating policies, systems, processes and training of Bureau staff. The Bureau was developed to ensure practical and effective implementation of the legislation.
As a post-conflict state, our project team worked with the client to understand the environment in which the Region’s economy, society and culture has evolved, and currently operates. The project required constant engagement with Government, landowners, community groups, as well as foreign and locally owned businesses.
