Papua New Guinea TREASURER Ian Ling-Stuckey says US technology giant Amazon Web Services (AWS) and NiuPay Ltd are working to forge more innovative start-ups in public and private institutions.
“The aim is for Papua New Guinea companies to deliver built-for-the-cloud applications and help fuel economic development nationwide,” he said.
Ling-Stuckey and AWS’ Australian-based executive team in Port Moresby met last Monday.
“This is the first time a technology company of this size is engaging with the Government directly,” he said.
“Amazon is one of the world’s largest companies and a leader in digital space.
“Their support of ongoing and upcoming e-government projects through their partner NiuPay will accelerate our digital transformation.
“It is an incredible vote of confidence that we are moving our government platforms in the right direction.”
AWS is the market leader in IaaS (infrastructure-as-a-service) and PaaS (platform-as-a-service) for cloud ecosystems.
AWS is widely recognised as the industry leader in data security and their solutions are centred on cloud technologies designed to meet the most stringent security requirements in the world.
NiuPay, a PNG technology firm, has partnered with AWS and are working closely with various Government departments, as well as State-owned enterprises to support ongoing e-government projects to drive innovation and enabling new digital services for Papua New Guineans.
For students and educators, AWS is also planning to extend its AWS educate programme in the PNG market.
The programme provides users with no cost access to learning content and AWS services designed to build knowledge and skills in cloud computing.
It is used in more than 200 countries and territories and connects 2,400 institutions, over 10,000 educators, and hundreds of thousands of students.
“The programme gives students and educators access to content and programmes developed to up skill careers in growing fields such as cloud computing, another first of its kind for PNG,” Ling-Stuckey said.
“The digital future is looking bright for PNG and the Government is working to ensure these cutting edge technologies are available to Papua New Guineans.”
