PNG’s Prime Minister to attend Bali Democracy Forum

New Papua New Guinea Prime Minister Peter O’Neill has accepted an invitation to the Bali Democracy Forum in December.

The Post Courier newspaper quotes the Indonesia President’s special envoy, Iwan Wiranata-Atmadja as saying President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono fully recognizes PNG as a shining example of democracy.
“For that reason, the Indonesian President invites you to participate in the forum.”

This year’s theme will be ‘Enhancing Democratic Participation in a changing World Responding to Democratic Voices’ and will discuss democracy as a process of governance that requires the broad participation of citizenry in decision making.

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill says he looks forward to having fruitful discussions to further strengthen both countries’ relations.
