From infrastructural development to human capacity building, Papua New Guinea can learn a lot from India.
With the existing bilateral relationship between both countries, Indian High Commissioner to PNG, Madhava Chandra, has plans to invest in the PNG economy.
Given its current status as a developing nation, India, through leaders like Gandhi, has risen to become a powerful economy amongst third world nations.
Since his posting to PNG in August, the High Commissioner to India has seen a lot of avenues where PNG and India can work together to develop these sectors.
The High Commissioner said health, education and infrastructural developments are three priority areas where India can invest in.
He said these investments are timely because India is at the edge of an economic transition.
It is understood that both countries have established dialogue and positive outcomes are expected.
The India High Commission has supported 12 grandmothers, who have graduated from Barefoot College in India last month.
These mothers have returned to PNG with basic skills in solar engineering.
