ABSTRACT
The article considers the decision of Barrup Fertilisers to shift its investment and trade focus from Australia to Papua New Guinea. When Pankaj Oswal started building one of the world's biggest ammonia factories in Australia in 2001, he was hailed as India's answer to China's domination of Australian resources development. But rather than celebrate the completion of the Burrup Fertilisers plantin 2006, Oswal, who is Burrup's chairman, has been left lamenting Australia's hothouse economy.
