PRIME Minister James Marape says he is satisfied with what he achieved during his recent 11-day trip to the United States.

“I am happy with the outcomes of my visit to the United States.

“I am also glad to be back in the country after being overseas for 11 days where I first attended the United Nations General Assembly in New York City from Sept 21-24,” he said.

“I then travelled to Houston to execute the Heads of Agreement (HOA) on the P’nyang Gas Agreement along with an equity purchase HOA with ExxonMobil.
“I and the State Negotiation Team met Mark Bristow and his team from Barrick to go through matters outstanding to restart the Porgera Mine at the earliest.”
He said his address to the UN General Assembly went well.

“I addressed the United Nations General Assembly as the world continues to battle the Covid-19 crisis, as well as the greatest long-term threat faced by mankind: climate change,” he said.

“I addressed various issues concerning Papua New Guinea such as gender equality, an update on Bougainville plus other UN-related programmes.

“Peace and human rights issues in PNG and in Indo-Pacific were also raised.”
He said it was his first address to the United Nations General Assembly.
Acting Prime Minister Soroi Eoe welcomed him back.
