GOVERNOR-General Sir Bob Dadae has accepted new Pakistani High Commissioner Babar Amin’s credentials.
In his welcoming remarks, Sir Bob said on behalf of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Government and people of Papua New Guinea, he was pleased to welcome Amin to the country.
Sir Bob said PNG and Pakistan had established formal diplomatic relations in 1977, and over the years, the relations between the countries had been warm and friendly.
“The cordial relations enjoyed by our two countries have positively indicated a huge potential for our relations to grow and expand further in various areas of cooperation and these areas of cooperation that both countries should be engaged in include agriculture, education, science and technology, manufacturing and small and medium enterprise development, tourism, and inter-parliamentary dialogue,” he said.
He said the engagement between the two nations’ political leaders had been minimal and had occurred mainly in the multilateral arena, especially on the margins of forums such as the United Nations, the Commonwealth of Nations, the World Trade Organisation, and the Non-Aligned Movement.
“I wish to assure you that the PNG Government stands ready to render all support and assistance you may require in effectively and efficiently discharging your responsibility.”
