The Australian Government has opened an information centre in Port Moresby to help Papua New Guinean's seek tertiary study in Australia.

The centre was opened by the head of Ausaid, Stuart Schaefer and the Minister for Higher Education, David Arore.

EMTV reports Mr Schaefer as saying the centre, as well as scholarships already offered by Ausaid, will provide men and women with the skills and knowledge to drive change.

The scholarships are designed to help the PNG government in priority areas such as health, education, infrastructure and law and order.
