The Bougainville Referendum issue was top of the agenda when Prime Minister James Marape met with the Resident High Commissioner of New Zealand Philip Taula this week.
They met to discuss the status of the current PNG-New Zealand bilateral relations, as well as existing and new areas of cooperation.
At the start of their meeting, Marape thanked the New Zealand government for its continuous support towards peace and restoration on Bougainville towards the referendum.
Marape commended New Zealand for its role in the 2001 peace agreement.
He said the PNG government was happy to engage with New Zealand in business, as well as other areas of cooperation such as people-to-people, government-to-government, agriculture, fisheries and development of thermal energy and others.
Taula said PNG-NZ bilateral relations had great potential and New Zealand was committed to the rural electrification project it announced during APEC.
