Australia-PNG ties strong

THE Australia-Papua New Guinea partnership continues to be as strong as ever, Australian High Commissioner Bruce Davis says.
He outlined ways Australia was helping PNG through projects while addressing this year’s Leaders’ Summit.
“As we are in the midst of another busy year of working together, I would like to extend my sincere thanks for the continued partnership and friendship between Papua New Guinea and Australia,” Davis said.
“Like all partnerships and friendships, it will be important that we continue to work hard together to maintain the momentum and success we’ve had from the past.
“With continued effort, I’m confident that this will be the case.”
Davis said there would be some important shared commemorations this year of various WWII campaigns, including the 75th anniversary of Kokoda and Milne Bay.
He said the 2017 general election would be an important event for PNG.
“When the last polling booth has closed and the results are in, we stand ready to work with PNG’s next government,” he said.
“We do so as we have done for many years.”
Davis said next year’s Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit would provide the perfect opportunity for PNG to showcase itself.The National/ONE PNG
