Papua New Guinea's Prime Minister Peter O'Neill says this weekend's royal visit will not be disrupted despite threats by landowners to interrupt their arrival.

Safe guarding resources for future generations

Papua New Guinea (PNG) is a mountainous, rainforest covered country located on the western edge of the Pacific Ocean. It is made up of the eastern half of the island of New Guinea, the New Ireland, New Britain, Bougainville islands and other smaller islands. Papua New Guinea shares its land borders with Indonesia to the east, Australia to the south and the Solomon Islands to the south-east. It is also a country richly blessed with natural resources.

The Royals Visit

So here’s a question for you. How long will the Prince of Wales and his wife the Duchess of Cornwall be here in PNG? The answer 2 days! They arrive on the 3rd of November and leave on the 5th.

The most upsetting thing for me personally is that those fleeting hours that His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales will be in PNG is enough to warrant a K8 million budget to welcome him.
