Exchange of Notes between PNG, Japan

The Exchange of Notes for the execution of the Economic and Social Development Programme were signed between the governments of Japan and PNG.

The Exchange of Notes was between Japan’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Taro Kono, and PNG's Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Rimbink Pato.

This will enable the provision of education materials which will be made available later at the official residence of Ambassador of Japan to PNG, Satoshi Nakajima.

The grant funding for the provision of education materials stands at one billion, two hundred million  Japanese Yen or K35 million.

The non-project grant aid is in line with the development plans of the government of PNG.

The government and people of Japan hope that this provision of education materials will contribute to the success of the education system as well as for further human development of PNG.
