PNG Prime Minister O'Neill to make State visit to Russia

Papua New Guinea Prime Minister  Peter O’Neill will be leading a government and business delegation to Russia later in the year at the invitation of the Russian Government.

O’Neill was invited by the Russian Prime Minister, H.E. Dmitry Medvedev during the 2018 APEC Summit in Port Moresby. O’Neill confirmed the visit when he had talks with Russia’s President, H.E. Vladimir Putin, at the Belt and Road Forum in Beijing last week.

“While there had not been much exchange with Russia in the past, this has been growing in recent years, particularly since Papua New Guinea’s emergence in the LNG sector.

“There are industry synergies and investment opportunities that can be discussed, and Russia has extensive technical experience in gas production.

“There are also opportunities for Papua New Guinea businesses.

“As we expand our agricultural exports there are opportunities to explore opportunities in Eastern Russia, and we are also seeing an increase in Russian tourists coming to Papua New Guinea.

“Our country must continue to expand our horizons for trade and investment that leads to further job creation, and we look forward to expanding our engagement with Russia.
