Created in December 2018, MEAP is an integral part of AIDAN Limited and is a business activity of the company, focusing on empowerment through international business partnerships. The target segment comprises women and men micro and small business owners and entrepreneurs.

Upon return to PNG, we go back to our own businesses and MEAP disperses until the following year. However, once a MEAP member, always a MEAP member.
