Chinese province to give furniture to schools in Papua New Guinea

Secondary and high schools in Eastern Highlands will receive chairs and tables donated by the Guangdong province of China next year.
This was announced during the Guangdong photo exhibition at the new Malaria Centre at Hohola in Port Moresby last Tuesday.
Eastern Highlands provincial advisory secretary, John Sari, arrived from Goroka on behalf of Governor Peter Numu.
“We, the people of Eastern Highlands, send our warm thanks and appreciation to the people of Guangdong province in China,” he said
“I was privileged to visit the Guangdong province.
“It has so many beautiful cities.
“One thing I admire is the One Belt One Road policy – which has changed many countries in the Pacific.”
Sari said China’s generosity to the people of Papua New Guinea augured well for relationships between the two countries.
Vice-chairman of the people’s political consultative conference and chairman of Guangdong provincial committee of China, Huang Wu, arrived with six members from Guangdong to host the ceremony.
“Guangdong is one of the first and fastest developing cities out of 30 cities in China and one of the economic hubs of the country,” he said.
“Economic development, culture of Guangdong, splendid scenery and maritime Silk Road are four parts of the Guangdong photo exhibited today to showcase its enormous achievements after 40 years.”
Wu said Guangdong was willing to strengthen cooperation with PNG to promote miscellaneous and beneficial cultural exchanges with mutual understanding and friendships.
“Through this photo exhibition, we hope people of PNG can know more about Guangdong and choose to visit the city,” he said. The National/ONEPNG
