Recently released tables are used to profile Papua New Guinea’s sustainable development condition and the status of occupational health and safety within that condition. Impressions emerging from the profiling process are checked and balanced against the stated views of the government of Papua New Guinea. In general the profiling process and the government views complement each other and reveal that significant and entrenched difficulties are presently being faced by Papua New Guinea on its journey through nationhood. The complex and substantial nature of these difficulties is acknowledged and even in the face of these difficulties some qualified countervailing suggestions are made.
