PAPUA New Guinea wants to see increased bilateral cooperation with Hungary in areas of trade, tourism and development assistance, according to Governor General Sir Bob Dadae, pictured.
Sir Bob said this when accepting the letter of credence from Hungary Ambassador to PNG Mistvan Mikalo in Port Moresby yesterday.
He said the Government recognised the continued support and contributions that the Republic of Hungary had given through its contributions to the European Union.
“Your support has assisted Papua New Guinea’s development aspirations and efforts through various financial and technical development assistance programmes,” he said.
Diplomatic relations between PNG and Hungary were established in 1977.
It was understood that in the international arena, both nations share the common desire to uphold democratic principles and promote peaceful co-existence and security in their respective regions as well as in the global community.
Mikalo said during his tenure, he would help take the relationship between the two nations to the next stage.
Also at the Government House yesterday, Sir Bob accepted another letter of credence by the Ambassador of the Czech Republic to Papua New Guinea, Milan Hupcej.
Sir Bob pledged the Government’s support and assistance to Mikalo and Hupcej during their tour of duty in promoting the relationship between their countries and PNG.
