India commits to help PNG


INDIAN High Commissioner to Papua New Guinea Nagendra Saxena has committed K100,000 as a grant to the Morobe government.
Saxena said in Lae last Friday it was up to the Morobe government how to spend the money as India had pledged to help develop PNG.
He said India was a world leader in computer technology and if the government chose to, it could acquire computers from India.
“We are committed and ready to help PNG but the onus is on the government in terms of cooperation to enhance our friendship,” he said
Saxena told The National that India could provide assistance to the country in education, medicine and agriculture.
He said India was a leading producer of rice and milk and their vast knowledge in agriculture could greatly help PNG.
“Many people of this country know very little about us and we don’t know much about PNG as well. Therefore, we have to open up and understand each other to make this mutual friendship a reality,” he said.
