From , 5:02 am on 23 July 2018

A Papua New Guinea company recognised internationally for its promotion of gender equality hopes other Pacific-based companies will follow its path.

NCS, which is PNG's largest catering company, has been awarded a leading global and business assessment, the Economic Dividends for Gender Equality certification.

The first company from the Pacific Islands to be awarded the certification, NCS employs 680 women in a workforce of 1300.

The company's human resources general manager, Violet Aopi, told Johnny Blades the certification is a big deal for NCS.
