This year, SR Curio founder, Sofia Ramoi has received an invitation to attend from ABAC and shares:

Two years ago, I was fortunate to be contracted by ABAC PNG and under the vision of ABAC PNG Member, the late Mr. Wayne Golding, OBE, I was part of the team that hosted the APEC CEO Summit in Papua New Guinea. This year, I am privileged to receive an exclusive invitation and look forward to learning and engaging in the Dialogues to develop a plan for how #MSME’s like SR Curio can grow and implement the ABAC recommendations from the ABAC 2020 Final Report. On a personal note, I look forward to the address by Sheryl Sandberg, COO for Facebook and founder of, who’s quote “Done is better than perfect”, has been a personal mantra since 2013.”
