On behalf of the Nambawan Super Board, Management and staff it is my pleasure to wish all of Papua New Guinea a very happy 47th Independence Day.
PNG is known as one of the world’s most culturally diverse countries with nearly 850 languages and hundreds of different tribes, but every year on the 16th of September we witness an amazing show of unity in diversity when all our people come together to celebrate this day.
It is this unity that the Fund aspires to embody in our work as the Trustee for our over 214,000 hard-working Members who come from all walks of life and all Provinces.
Regardless of the differences in our languages, traditions, professions and homes, Nambawan Super is committed to providing the best retirement outcomes for everyone.
This year 2022, also marks Nambawan Super’s 60th Anniversary of service to the people of PNG. As PNG’s longest serving superannuation fund, Nambawan Super is proud to have been contributing to the growth of the Nation and building better futures for Papua New Guineans over the last 60 years.
As we celebrate these milestones we should also take time to reflect on the values upon which this Country was founded and consider how we can all work together to build a free, peaceful and prosperous Nation as our founding fathers had intended.
PNG is blessed with rich natural resources, fertile soil and a population of over 9 million resourceful Papua New Guineans, including 2.8 million skilled workers, that are willing to support the growth of this Country. Nambawan Super aims to utilise these resources through our investments and projects as we continue to support the socio-economic growth of the Nation for the benefit of everyone.
We also remain committed to maintaining our high level of Member services through the upskilling of our staff, delivering more superannuation awareness, and continuing the rollout of our Financial Literacy Training to better enable our Members to take advantage of our superannuation products and services for a better retirement outcome.
We pledge to continue working with the futures of our Members at the forefront of all our endeavours, as we have done so for the last 60 years.
Once again I would like to wish you all a safe and happy Independence Day.
