Is Adventure Kokoda legally compliant to operate in PNG?

According to PNG Investment Promotion Authority (IPA) records Adventure Kokoda is the only Australian company to fully comply with the provisions of their Act for operating a business in PNG since the Kokoda Track Authority was established in 2004. 

We are registered as an approved 'Foreign Enterprise' in PNG and we contract Adventure Kokoda PNG Limited, a registered PNG company, to provide the personnel and logistic support for our treks.

Unfortunately, certification by the Kokoda Track Authority is meaningless as it has been corrupted and its management functions are now beyond dysfunctional.

Prospective trekkers are therefore advised to use the legal principal of Caveat Emptor - i.e., 'let the buyer beware' when choosing a company to trek with.
