A new report has encouraged Papua New Guinea to grasp the multi-million dollar benefits that cruise tourism could provide the country.

The World Bank's International Finance Corporation's report on the economic impact of cruise tourism says that four and a half million US dollars was generated from the industry last year and with the amount likely to increase, the country should hone their tourism focus.
