PNG borders are vulnerable: Maipakai

Papua New Guinea’s borders are vulnerable to illegal trade and human trafficking, according to a government minister.

The National newspaper quotes the minister for inter-government relations and border development, Mark Maipakai, as saying it is important that the government improves border security, surveillance and infrastructure.
 He believes there is likely to be an increase in illegal trade, human and drug trafficking and the acquiring of guns and dangerous weapons near the borders as PNG’s economy expands.

PNG shares land and sea borders with Indonesia, and maritime borders with Solomon Islands and Australia.
