Do locals receive money from tourist companies?
Yes of course they do but at times they benefit directly from tourists. If
the tourist company is responsible for bringing tourist into a local area,
they have to pay the locals for the use of their resources while visiting
the place.

Do tourist affect local?
No. Not at all . The locals are just glad to have them. around....the presence of tourists gives them a taste of what is like out in the advanced world.

Are land destroyed due to tourism?
No. there are certain rules protecting land or what is in the land from
being exploited or taken out of the country and tourists are complying well with these laws.

Are you wanting to become more westernised by offering tours?

Im not too sure if that is what most Papua New Guineans would want. PNG like many countries in the Pacific is still developing. I think the main reason for offering tours is just the same with most countries. I think by offering tours means we want to show the world what we've got at the same time attract more tourists to come to our country - obvioulsy more tourists means more money. This also applies to bringing
development and job opportunities in our country.
