Congressman Chaffetz also met and thanked Prime Minister Peter O’Neill for his support for the American Investments, such as the ExxonMobil LNG project. 

He said such investments play a big role in PNG’s development.

 

The Republican Congressman said the U.S. Mission will help Papua New Guinea grow its economy in a way that is inclusive, sustainable, and transparent.

 

Congressman Chaffetz also met with Papua New Guinean Ambassador to the United States Rupa Mulina and Acting Deputy Secretary of Foreign Affairs Lucy Bogari, to highlight the importance of the Asia-Pacific Region to the United States.

 

Congressman Chaffetz was elected in 2008 to represent the State of Utah’s Third Congressional District Now, and this is his third term in the office; he serves as the Chair of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform’s Subcommittee on National Security.
