We are proud of our involvement in the PNG Community. We support our National staff and both their growth and that of their families is important to us. As a division of the Steamships Trading Company (STC) we have access to Training and Development Programs we make use of these, to continue to improve the skills and values of our people and our business.

In October 2016 our GM, Gerard O'Brien, with the involvement of many staff, updated our Mission Statement, making it fresh and current. This is "The LAGA Way" and we aspire to it in all of our processes, production, staff and customer interactions, PLUS in all of our in-house Staff Training and Development Programs.

We provided it in both English and Tok Pisin - as it is important to us that ALL of our staff understand our Mission and Values.
