Who Are We?

The Employers' Federation of Papua New Guinea (EFPNG) is an independent peak employers group providing labour and industrial relations advice and services to over 200 private sector employers of all sizes and across a wide range of industries.

Registered as an Industrial Organisation on 27th August 1963, EFPNG is a key stakeholder in PNG’s tripartite labour and industrial relations policy and decision making process.

Any organisation that is registered as an employer with the Investment Promotion Authority (IPA) is eligible to apply for membership in the Employers' Federation of PNG.

International Representation

The Federation is a member of the International Organization of Employers (IOE) and represents employers’ interests at international forums such as the International Labor Organization’s (ILO) annual International Labor Conference (ILC).

The Federation has a very close working relationship with the ILO through their Country Office for Pacific Island Countries based in Suva Fiji and the ILO Regional Office for Asia-Pacific region in Bangkok, Thailand, to maintain international labor standards and to comply with ratified ILO conventions.

The Federation also works in close association with the Confederation of Asia Pacific Employers (CAPE).
