Partnership improves access for PNG SMEs

The Milne Bay SME Association recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Media Partners Limited to help their members sell locally-made goods in Australia and worldwide.

Media Partners Limited is a well-known company in Papua New Guinea with over twenty years of experience in media and marketing. It is the official buying agent for Kulture Hub Coffee Shop and Specialty Store, owned and run by Gloria Gapi, a Papua New Guinean businesswoman who lives and works in Cairns, Australia.

Kulture Hub aims to show off the wide range and high quality of goods made by local small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) and give them direct access to customers in Australia through their Cairns coffee shop and around the world through their website.

To support this partnership, Media Partners is a buyer and a partner with SME suppliers, helping them improve the quality of their products and giving them chances to sell competitively in foreign markets.

Small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) in Papua New Guinea have had trouble getting to markets for a long because of things like currency, freight, and finding partners they can trust. The partnership between Media Partners and Kulture Hub is meant to help SMEs get around these problems.

One of the exciting relationships Media Partners is making on behalf of Kulture Hub is with the Milne Bay SME Association. Through this partnership, SMEs, start-ups, and entrepreneurs get the business tools they need to grow.

To keep this promise, Media Partners funded the Lily Magazine 2023 Homegrown Competition and gave the top 3 category winners K24,000 worth of professional website creation and email domain support. They will also sell the goods of the top 15 finalists in the Kulture Hub Cairns Shop, which will ship worldwide.

The Kulture Hub Coffee Shop is on Lake Street in Cairns, Australia. You can find out more by going to their online shop at You can also learn more about their relationship and the Lily Magazine challenge there.
