Training provides financial literacy ability

‘Papua New Guineans are lost today because we were not taught financial literacy in the education system. It’s one of the key components of giving people a good life’

PORT MORESBY – Investing safely in online in global forex trading featured at a business seminar in Port Moresby last weekend.

The two-day program at the Lamana Hotel was facilitated by Peter Kinjap, director of Howarig Traders, a locally registered enterprise.

Participants were educated in cryptocurrency, Bitcoin and CashFX trading as well as avoiding online scammers.

A former teacher at the seminar, Zachary Manui, said Papua New Guineans were not taught financial literacy in the education system.

“That’s why we are lost today,” Manui said. “One of the key components of giving people a good life is financial literacy.

“This was presented at the seminar and it’s made me interested in exploring the global forex market.”

“I learned a lot in these two days and coming here was not a waste,” said a female participant who travelled from East New Britain.

“I now fully understand what cryptocurrency, blockchain and Bitcoin are and how they work,” she said.

She said the most interesting part of the seminar for her was understanding how to trade Bitcoin online using kina.

“I’m planning to bring both of my sons to the next seminar to explore this business in the future.”

Other participants showed their appreciation for learning new things and thanked Kinjap for making it a successful event.
