“This is the best bridge this government partnering with Australian government has given us Sohe people we must we have all the reason to celebrate,” she said.
“This is the bridge that will save a lot of people, this is the bridge that will bring lots of tourists from Australia.”
Turning her attention to the officials from the Australians High Commission present at the event, Gore said: “The track signifies your sacredness, your people fought for us and they lost their lives, that are why Kokoda Track is a sacred for Australians.”
