Aus-PNG Network


The Australia-Papua New Guinea Network is an initiative to build stronger people-to-people links between Australia and Papua New Guinea and raise awareness of the relationship between the two countries. The Network aims to strengthen existing connections across areas as diverse as business, civil society, sport, education, media, culture, religion, and development. It also provides a point of contact for individuals and organisations wanting to learn about operating in either country, generating opportunities or simply wanting to find out more about Australia and Papua New Guinea.

The Network is run by the Lowy Institute, a Sydney-based think tank, in partnership with the National Research Institute of Papua New Guinea, based in Port Moresby. The Network is funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
