China has given 20 motor bikes and 10,000 police uniforms to the Papua New Guinea police force to help it improve policing services throughout the city.
The deputy Police Commissioner for Administration, Awan Sete, says the force is very grateful and the Chinese Government has offered valuable assistance to boost the morale of the force.
Mr Sete says there is a need to provide adequate transport policing services to crack down on crime in the city, especially in the lead up to the Pacific Games, which is scheduled to take place in July.
He says the donation is very timely as it will not only be used by police officers in training but also be used to improve escort duties and security to international guests attending the Games.
The Ambassador for China, Li Rui You, says the increasing population of PNG calls for more equipment and logistics to assist the police officers in cracking down on law and order issues.
