Solomons learn from PNG/Indonesia border management

A high level delegation from the Solomon Islands has returned from a fact finding mission to the Papua New Guinea/Indonesia border.

Crime, including drugs running and people smuggling, is always a major concern for law enforcement officials manning the border.

Solomon Islands is hoping to see how Port Moresby and Jakarta deal with these sorts of issues – and it’s hoped this will help Solomon Islands in its management of its own border with Papua New Guinea on Bougainville.

The Solomon Islands delegation was led by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and External Trade, George Hiele.

He was joined by High Commissioner to Papua New Guinea Bernard Bata’anisia and other senior government officials from the Prime Minister’s office.
