Port Moresby is developing at a rate like never before.

Are the living standards equally growing at a rate that is able to handle these new developments?

Port Moresby city has been growing at a rapid rate.  Whether the living conditions or lifestyle is keep up to this growth is an entirely different question.  We took to the streets to capture some of the places and below are some of the shots taken.

It seems most of the vacant land is now being taken up for development and it won’t be very long before most vacant land in the city will have new developments on them.

Given that most of the land is customary owned, you have to wonder whether the traditional landowners are benefiting from all these acquisitions and developments.
