Watch: Redevelopment of Gordons Market, Port Moresby

Joyce Mape, vendor at Gordons Market

Reopened in 2019, Gordons Market is a hub of economic and social activity in Port Moresby, the capital of Papua New Guinea. Home to over 1500 registered vendors, the two-storey complex was redeveloped in a joint venture between the New Zealand Government and PNG’s National Capital District Commission (NCDC) as part of the UN Women’s Safe City Programme aimed at making markets safe for women and girls.

The original market, built in the 1980s, had problems with flooding, overcrowding, petty crime, and safety. Now it is a thriving marketplace providing opportunities for vendors and changing their lives.  PasifikaTV
