Mr. Marape also took the opportunity to visit Momote Airport to see the progress of work on the new Momote Airport terminal constructed by the Chinese firm AG Investment Limited which will soon be completed.

The new Momote Airport terminal is among a number of key projects that will be built in Manus over the next five years.

This includes the development of the East-West Highway, the construction of N'Drauke Industrial Port and the construction of a brand new world-class hospital to replace the dilapidated hospital that has served the island province since 1963.
