Morrison said that yesterday when opening the new building for the School of Business and Public Policy at the University of PNG.
The building was funded by AusAID for more than K80 million.
“One of the reasons why Apec 2018 is tremendously successful is about quality leaders working together,” Morrison said.
“And this is good for Papua New Guineans coming together to have the best education. “ PNG is progressing ahead because it is focused on the young people and it is not about building roads and other infrastructural developments. It is about building institutions such as this that actually provide the real investment in the people that will build the nation. Here we are powering PNG’s education in building such institutions.”
Morrison said that Australia’s commitment would always be in PNG because PNG was committed to express their sovereignty in a positive manner.
“This building will have young Papua New Guineans come here and learn to focus on a good future for this nation.”

“And it is good for Morrison to open this building for our young leaders to have an education that they truly deserve,” he said.
The four-level building includes two lecture theatres, five tutorial rooms, computer and hospitality laboratories, a library, 10 meeting rooms and 50 offices.
