ACP leaders praise PNG for hosting summit

​Papua New Guinea has been praised by world leaders for hosting the successful 8th African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States Summit.

In thanking the government of PNG for the successful hosting of the Summit, Sierre Leonie Vice President Dr Victor Bockarie Foh said Papua New Guinea can be seen as very far on the map but it is so close to the ACP member countries.

 “I think the people of PNG are very friendly and their hospitality and behaviour for keeping the city clean and looking after us.

” He said it is not easy to host such summits but PNG have shown the true development in the country by hosting this successful gathering.

He praised Prime Minister Peter O’Neill for his steering during the ACP Summit and for the excellent job done.

 Dr Foh added that such successful meeting have proven that PNG is really a developed democratic country and good political stability in the country.

Meanwhile, the 8th Summit officially ends today. The Summit adopted the Port Moresby Declaration that captures the main outcomes of the 8th Summit ACP Leaders discussion and the Waigani Communique that sets the way forward for the future of the ACP Group beyond the expiry of the Cotonou Agreement in 2020.
