The Papua New Guinea community in the United Arab Emirates is excited about Papua New Guinea’s participation at the Dubai World Exposition and are willing to assist where practical.

Papua New Guinea’s Commissioner General to the Exposition, Ambassador Joshua Kalinoe briefed some of them on the Pavilion and Thematic Week programmes and sought their participation where appropriate.

The meeting was organized by Papua New Guinea’s senior Captain on Emirates Airline, Mr. Locklyn Sabumei. A number of PNG citizens are working with Emirates Airlines and Etihad Airways in the UAE as pilots, aircraft engineers and flight attendants. The PNG community expressed keen interest in assisting where possible.

“Some of them expressed the desire to assist in marketing PNG products that we are promoting at the Expo using their networks,“ Amb Kalinoe said.

“They are our best Ambassadors on the ground and the PNG Expo Team will definitely involve them as partners.

“This is an important national event that comes with the support and mandate from the Prime Minister’s Cabinet and we want to involve as many Papua New Guineans as possible to tell our story of visibility, trade and investment,” he said.
