Governor-General Sir Bob Dadae and the Ambassador of Switzerland to PNG promised to strengthen the bilateral and the multilateral relationship between the two countries for people’s benefit.
Sir Bob in welcoming the ambassador, Yasmine Chatila Zwahlen, appreciated the government of Switzerland for its continued support.
He accepted Zwahlen’s letter of credence.
“I take this opportunity to thank you for conveying the respect and friendship of the government and people of Switzerland to the government and people of PNG,” Sir Bob said.
