PNG Prime Minister Peter O'Neill ends visit to Fiji

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill met with the Fiji-PNG Business Council on Monday to talk about opportunities in investments, building business and creating jobs.

“We are deepening investment between our countries, and this is building businesses and creating jobs,” Mr O’Neill said this as he ended his official visit to Fiji.

He was also invited to speak at the University of the South Pacific on Monday where he encouraged continuing exchanges between the two countries of PNG and Fiji.

“Education is key to both of our futures and we must continue to exchange students.”

Mr O’Neill also had bilateral discussions earlier with Fiji PM Bainimarama where both leaders covered a number of areas of mutual interest.

“When my delegation returns to Port Moresby they will follow-up on the issues we discussed. We will communicate and finalise arrangements for chanceries in both countries.”

“We will continue to work together on emerging security threats in our region.”

“I have already instructed our officials to take a deeper look at establishing a free trade agreement between our countries.”

“As you prepare for upcoming elections, PNG stands ready to offer our support to this process.”

On global issues Mr O’Neill said on many occasions he had stated that climate change is a very serious threat to people.

“Natural disasters always impact the hardest on people in developing countries.

“Fiji has experienced terrible cyclones, PNG has experienced devastating drought, and our coastal communities are falling victim to rising sea levels.”

“We will continue to work together in global forums to help our people – and people around the Pacific.”
