PNGDF Returns to Bougainville after 23 Years

Led by Captain Brian Pohai, the team of PNGDF Navy engineers arrived on Bougainville to bring much-needed relief supplies and to aid in the resettlement of local communities affected in the Torokina area of South Bougainville.

According to Minister for Bougainville Affairs Manasseh Makiba, this is a significant milestone for both Papua New Guinea and the Autonomous Bougainville Government (ABG). Since the Bougainville crisis and the signing of the Bougainville Peace Agreement (BPA) in 2001, the PNGDF had not been deployed to Bougainville until this moment.
