The Independent State of Papua New Guinea (in English: The Independent State of Papua New Guinea), referred to as Papua New Guinea and PNG. It is located in the southwestern part of the Pacific Ocean. It borders the Irian Jaya province of Indonesia to the west, and faces Australia across the Torres Strait to the south. It belongs to the Melanesian Islands. There are more than 600 islands throughout the territory. The main islands include New Britain, New Ireland, Manus, Bougainville, and Buka, etc. The total length of the coastline is 8,300 kilometers. The land area is 462,800 square kilometers.

Papua New Guinea – the forgotten evolutionary island. It is the hometown of the paradise bird, the location of the last cannibalistic tribe of humans, the wonderful realm of animals and plants, and also a paradise for anthropologists, sociologists, and linguists.

Papua New Guinea has 8,500 kilometers of pure and beautiful coastlines, with a warm and humid climate, beautiful scenery, and 86% of the country’s territory is covered with dense and vigorous primeval forests. The air is fresh, and the wood resources are extremely abundant. The main export industries are minerals, coffee, copra, rubber, and wood and seafood.

As a huge exporter of coffee, 95% of the coffee in Papua New Guinea is the Arabica variety. The most popular Papua New Guinea coffee on the market at present is the “Paradise Bird” series, because the national emblem of Papua New Guinea is the bird of paradise, and it is also the national bird of the country. The flavor of coffee in Papua New Guinea not only has a creamy and dense texture, but also is extremely sweet and complex.

This earthquake mainly has an impact on the cities in the West New Britain Province, so it has not had much impact on the coffee-producing areas in the Western Highlands Province and the Eastern Highlands Province, and the Morobe Province, which are farther away.
