International Relations/ Foreign Policy
The ‘friends to all enemy to none policy’ will be maintained.
Focus will be on major economic partners and traditional friends, like Australia, China, Japan, New Zealand and our Pacific neighbours in particular the Melanesian Spearhead Group. Papua New Guinea will seek to provide leadership and engagement with our Pacific neighbours and regional development oraganisations.
Trade with our wealthy partners will be vigorously pursued and will entail engagement of the private sector. The Trade Functions will be reverted back to Foreign Affairs. Emphasis will be placed on a one-stop-shop on visa and work permits.
