The Small Industries Centre.

The SIC, which comes under the Small Business Development Corporation, is in the forefront of promoting the Government’s policy on Small Micro and Medium Enterprises (SMMEs) in Papua New Guinea.
It is mandated to promote technologies “appropriate” for self-help project initiatives at the village level.
It is charged with the mission “to develop, advise and assist individuals and groups in village and urban communities with appropriate technologies to enhance their quality of life” and also provide skills training for locals to start up small scale industries and cottage type industries in both urban and the rural areas”.
With this mandate, the SIC is also projecting its attention to meet the Government’s policy on “Beyond The Minerals Boom”.
With this policy statement, the SIC – with its sub programmes – is reorganising itself to promote, provide and facilitate small-scale industry in the urban and rural communities of PNG so that a sound and sustainable economic growth is achieved.
Its activities are targeted to assist Papua New Guineans to participate in the development of local industries through the provision of technical and business skills needed for small-scale processing industries.
The SIC has been in existence for many years and, before 1985, came directly under the Small Industries Research and Development Unit – a division of the Department of Commerce and Industry.
In 1983, following the abolishment of the Department of Commerce and Industry, the SIC – because of the similarities of its mission statement objectives, functions and activities with that of the South Pacific Appropriate Technology Foundation (SPATF), a special project of the Office of Village Development under the Department of Prime Minister – merged with SPATF, thus the creation of a new organisation known then as SPATF/Small Industries Centre until 1996.

On establishment, it undertook a number of programmes to achieve its aims and objectives.
The focal activities were the development and dissemination of technologies for self help community development projects, with particular emphasis on the village and underprivileged urban communities.
In 1996, the National Executive Council issued a directive for the SIC to be amalgamated with SBDC.
It effectively became a division of SBDC, however, without any major changes to its objectives, functions and activities.
The SIC maintained its current operations, even after SBDC was abolished by the Skate Government in 1998, and also without any government funding during the last six years.
“Currently, we have three active projects,” says Huha Avia, acting executive manager of the SIC.
“They are leather craft, rattan and light engineering.
“We produce leather shoes, belts, rattan, and light engineering tools such as water pumps, brick making machines, drum ovens and rice mills.
“We try our best to sustain the operations.”
The leather section produces high quality leather products that are competitive to the imported products, provides skills training to Papua New Guineans, and provides a professional leather repair service.
There is, at present, no tannery in PNG and all leather hides are exported unfinished and all leather skins for processing are imported finished.
The SIC’s own leather products operation, Pacific Footwear, consumes 300 square metres (3000 feet) per month while the minimum reported viable size of a tannery would require throughout of 500 square metres (5000 square feet) per month.
Pacific Footwear has penetrated no more than perhaps 25 per cent of its potential markets in Port Moresby and it functions at no more than 50 per cent of production capacity presently.
The cane section supplies the PNG market with best quality products, provides training for youths, extends rattan processing methods to rural areas and acts as an agent for rattan exports overseas, and provides professional services in dealing with all areas relating to the rattan industry.

This industry has huge potential for PNG.
Light engineering carries out continuous research and development in to technologies appropriate for rural and urban communities, training and apprenticeship for those needing it, and makes its services available to the urban community.
This division is primarily the implementing centre for the organization on all appropriate technologies developed and those under implementation.
Technologies under implementation include metal workshop, wokabaut somil, deep well water pump, brick manufacturing moulds, small bakeries and woodwork.
Mr Avia is adamant the SIC can do its bit towards addressing PNG’s social problems, including poverty and HIV.
“You have to provide an alternative,” he says.
“You can bring people here and train them or pass on skills.
“You are addressing poverty and social problems.”
