PNG PM O'Neill to officially visit China

Papua New Guinea’s economic and trading relationship with China will continue to strengthen with the official visit by Prime Minister Peter O’Neill next week to China accompanied by a high level government and business delegation.

The visit will include meetings with the President of China Xi Jinping, the Premier Li Keqiang and senior government leaders.

"The relationship we have with China continues to strengthen and this delivers real economic benefit to the people of Papua New Guinea," Mr O’Neill said in a statement yesterday.

"On this visit to China we will advance a number of agreements that will contribute to trade, infrastructure development and travel between our two countries.

"There is a great deal we can do to strengthen co-operation in areas that include agriculture, forestry, fisheries, transportation and communications.

"China has developed technologies that have direct application in our primary industry sectors, and we will enhance co-operation in these areas."

The Prime Minister said there are also a range of policy matters that will be discussed in Beijing.

"At global and regional levels there are a number of issues that are of interest to PNG and China, and we look forward to an engaging dialogue." Post Courier/ PNG Today
