Amazon founder and billionaire owner, Jeff Bezos, aged 55, was ranked by Forbes magazine as the worlds richest man with a net worth of US$131 billion or K450 billion.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the market leader in IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) and PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) for cloud ecosystems. AWS are widely recognized as the industry leader in data security, with this focus at the core of any solution within their infrastructure. Their solutions are centred around cloud technologies and designed to meet the most stringent security requirements in the world. Their infrastructure is monitored 24x7 by world-class security experts to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data.

This was facilitated by PNG technology firm NiuPay Limited, who are partnered with Amazon Web services, and are working closely with a range of PNG Government departments, as well as State Owned Enterprise. The partnership with AWS supports their ongoing e-government projects and will be instrumental in driving innovation and enabling new digital services for the citizens of Papua New Guinea.

“This close engagement with AWS and their partner NiuPay, will empower more public and private institutions, innovative start-ups, and PNG companies to deliver built-for-the-cloud applications that help fuel economic development across the country. Cloud technology is at the heart of the Papua New Guinea government’s digital transformation program, and their approach highlights the importance of setting a strong course for cloud adoption and leading by example to re-invent citizen services.” Said Treasurer, Ian Ling-Stuckey.

“This is the first time that a technology company of this size has engaged with the Government of Papua New Guinea directly. Amazon is one of the world’s largest companies and the leader in this digital space. Their support of ongoing and upcoming e-government projects through their partner NiuPay will accelerate our digital transformation and is an incredible vote of confidence that we are moving our government platforms in the right direction“ he said.

For Papua New Guinean students and educators, AWS are also planning to extend their AWS Educate program into the PNG market.

AWS educate provides its users with no cost access to learning content and AWS services designed to build knowledge and skills in cloud computing. It is used in more than 200 countries and territories and connects 2,400 institutions, over 10,000 educators, and hundreds of thousands of students. Through AWS Educate, students and educators have access to content and programs developed to upskill for careers in growing fields such as cloud computing. Another first of its kind for PNG.

“In a rapidly changing digital environment I am very encouraged by the moves to support our education and digital infrastructure though strong partners like Amazon. The digital future is looking bright for PNG and the Marape Government is working hard to ensure that these cutting edge technologies are available to the government and the people of PNG” said Mr Ling-Stuckey.
