Papua New Guinea Prime Minister Peter O’Neill has called on Melanesian countries to work together in achieving their common goals.
O’Neill stressed this message while addressing the Fijian Parliament in Suva this morning.
O’Neill says while the Melanesian countries are small in numbers compared to the rest of the world, they are stronger working together.
He said there are many global issues which affect the Pacific to which we have no control, however, working together can make a difference.
“We as Melanesian and Pacific Island Nations, must work together – simply by getting on and doing what is best for our own countries and also for the region. It is therefore important that we continue to build a strong bond in our two countries and of course in our regional and sub-regional organisations.”
O’Neill also expressed PNG’s interest in furthering trade and investment relationships.
He adds businesses from both countries are investing tourism, banks and agriculture, and PNG wishes to strengthen this.
