PM's address to the Aust/PNG Business Council

I want to assure you that the images often conjured up on television
screens and on newspaper editorials in Australia, or presented for example, by taxi drivers, which portray a land to the north where no-one is safe, corruption is universal, factionalism reigns and natural resources destroyed, is not what Papua New Guinea is all about. Whilst we cannot deny that there are problems and major challenges facing Papua New Guinea, the negative image which seems to have become prevalent in parts of the Australian community belies the truth. The country retains a bright future, so long as it addresses its problems
seriously and does not squander its opportunities. To achieve that, it needs constructive support and partnership from our friends in Australia and elsewhere, including the private sector.
