Papua New Guinea and New Caledonia have signed a memorandum of understanding to formalise a meeting between Foreign Affairs and Trade Minister Rimbink Pato and President Philippe Germain held in Noumea in May.
 
Pato said the Government was pleased with the outcome of the consultations between the business sectors of the two countries.
 
“We are very delighted with your expectations and your proposals to sign a declaration of intention and we hope that will take place when the Pacific island leaders meet in Nauru,” he said.
 
“There is a clear intention on our part to cooperate with New Caledonia to make sure that the outcomes of this meeting and declaration bears a fruit. I see that there will be great business opportunities for both of our countries.”
 
Pato said they agreed on a wide range of projects to implement.
 
“We are keen to ensure that we move on it as soon as possible and that these projects are effectively and efficiently undertaken,” he said.
 
“This includes the plans for cooperation in environment and resources protection, coral marine park, eco-tourism, security and effective use of maritime resources, French language training, provision of clean water supply to remote areas, energy generation from alternative sources, cooperation on agriculture to develop large scale farming,” he said.
