Hon Wesley Ora Raminai MP

Minister Assisting the Prime Minister on Sports & National Events and Member for Kagua Erave – Papua New Guinea

Honourable Wesley Ora Raminai was elected to Parliament in July 2017 following the Papua New Guinea (PNG) National Elections.

Mr Raminai was a businessman with extensive experience in the areas of Media, Finance, Tourism, Insurance and general Building Constructions, both in Papua New Guinea and Fiji before he decided to run for elections.

Following his election into Parliament Mr Raminai’s previous experience as a soccer player and later a sports administrator, put him in good stead as a suitable candidate when Papua New Guinea Prime Minister, Right Honourable Peter O’Neill as the Minister for Sports & National Events, needed a colleague MP to assist him with the Ministry in the execution of its duties.

Honourable Raminai has embraced this challenge with a lot of enthusiasm and is privileged to represent the Prime Minister and the country with pride and honour in any event that requires the Papua New Guinea Government’s representation at both the domestic and international level.

Papua New Guinea is situated on one of the world’s largest islands, sharing the border with Indonesian province, West Papua.

Papua New Guineans are very passionate about sports, which continues to play a significant role in uniting what is the largest country of the South Pacific with a population of over 7 million people.

Hear Mr Raminai speak at The Value of Sport: Maximising Opportunities in the Commonwealth event on 6 April at Commonwealth House.
