Papua New Guinea has an abundance of natural resources, but exploitation has been hampered by rugged terrain and the high cost of developing infrastructure and facilities. Agriculture, fisheries and farming provides a subsistence livelihood for 75 per cent of the general populace. Mineral deposits, including copper, gold, and oil and gas generate significant revenue for the economy too. Numerous problems still face the state including regaining investor confidence, restoring integrity to state institutions, promoting economic efficiency by privatizing moribund state institutions, and balancing relations with Australia, its former colonial ruler.
