He is expected to cover a range of issues as the guest speaker including the vision that Oppositionaligned parties have for Papua New Guinea, the current state of play in PNG politics and the challenges that currently face the country as the countdown begins to the 2017 general election. 

Prime Minister Peter O'Neill spoke at the inaugural NBC National Press Club launching on January 23, 2017 and used the opportunity to highlight his Government's track record in critical Government policies such as health, education and infrastructure development. 

The NBC National Press Club - Speaker Series is broadcast live on NBC national radio and is delayed telecast on NBC Television. There is also a training component to the event, which is done for Papua New Guinean journalists to prepare them for the event. 

In this election year the NBC National Press Club is part of the effort by the initiative's partners to support an open and democratic media to provide access to information.
