The level of Intellectual Property in Papua New Guinea has been very slow in its progress because despite having a number of innovative and creative thinkers in PNG, there is a major lack of infrastructure such as incubators or research development centers and expertise to assist them to develop their ideas to bring it to the market to commercialize it.
