By: Toa Sime
Papua New Guinea and New Zealand have finally signed an air services agreement paving the way for more air travel between the two countries.
Foreign Affairs Minister Rimbink Pato and his New Zealand counterpart, Murray McCulley signed the documents in Port Moresby, yesterday.
This now means there will be direct air travel between the two countries instead of having to make connection flights through Australian ports.
This is also Mr. McCully’s final visit to PNG as Minister for Foreign Affairs.
The New Zealand Foreign Minister and his delegation will travel to Bougainville to meet with the Autonomous Bougainville Government and other leaders there, to discuss that country’s ongoing support to developments in Bougainville.
They depart out of Bougainville for Solomon Islands today.
