PAPUA New Guinea recognises Israel’s assistance and support, notably in agriculture, Governor-General Sir Bob Dadae says.
He said that came through the Innovative Agro Industry Ltd (IAI), an affiliate of the Israeli LR Group of Companies, a leading project development company.
Sir Bob spoke as he welcomed Israeli Ambassador to PNG Tibor Shalve Schlosser.
“We are indeed very grateful to receive you and look forward to enhancing and furthering the already good bilateral and friendly relations that exist between Papua New Guinea and Israel for so many years,” he said.
“Let’s assure you that the Government of Papua New Guinea stands ready to accord you the necessary support and assistance you may require during your tour of duty in promoting and advancing the PNG-Israel relations for the mutual benefit of our two countries and people.
“I hope that you will find your tour of duty to Papua New Guinea personally rewarding and fulfilling.”
