- German New Guinea Company
In 1884, the New Guinea Company was founded in Berlin by Adolph von Hansemann and others for the purpose of colonizing and exploiting resources on Neu Guinea (German New Guinea), where German interest grew after British Queensland's annexation of part of eastern New Guinea.
Its influence soon grew to encompass the entire north-eastern part of New Guinea and some of the islands off the coast.
The Imperial German Government took official control in 1899.
