Papua New GuineaThe Australian Government aims to take the tourism industry of Papua New Guinea to the next level.

The Australian High Commissioner Bruce Davis reaffirmed the willingness of his government for supporting and assisting tourism projects and programs in an introductory meeting with the Minister for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Emil Tammur this week. Both leaders met in Parliament and discussed how best they would work together to develop the industry and ensure maximum benefits for people at the community level across the country.

Mr. Davis said that Papua New Guinea has a lot to offer to the world in tourism, arts and culture and suggested direct flight connections with Queensland in Australia. He also mentioned bird watching as an activity that has a lot of potential that needed to be further explored and marketed internationally.

“Australia remains keen and very supportive of any development program and projects to promote the tourism, arts and culture of Papua New Guinea. We are good advocates in promoting and selling PNG,” Mr. Davis said.

Mr. Tammur on his part said that the country needs major tourism infrastructure developments like roads to link sightseeing spots, particularly in East New Britain province where there are hundreds of untapped World War II Japanese tunnels.

Mr. Davis and the High Commissioner both agreed to work together to explore other areas of tourism.
