Burnie is a partner at PwC Port Moresby and has spent nearly 30 years delivering tax services and advising business owners across a wide range of industry sectors and was involved in the preparation of the CEO Survey in recent years.
For the past eight years, in its role as knowledge partner to the APEC CEO Summit, PwC says it has delivered the business perspective on doing business in the region through its annual APEC CEO Survey.
"The 2017 survey of 1412 APEC business leaders shows how business leaders are taking stock of a more fluid trade policy and technology environment. The results of the survey show that over the next three years, Asia Pacific CEOs expect their businesses will become more global, more automated and more tied to a region that they believe is slowly and steadily becoming more economically cohesive.
"APEC CEOs, including the sentiment of our PNG CEOs, are more optimistic today than during the previous two years - 37% say they are ‘very confident' of their prospects for revenue growth during the next 12 months. PwC PNG shares the results of the survey, and briefly address some of the opportunities they foresee for PNG, as we enter the 2018 APEC year," PwC said.
The event takes place at the Royal Papua Yacht Club from 7am to 9am on Wednesday, March 7, and costs K90 for members of the Port Moresby Chamber of Commerce and Industry and K100 for non-members.
