Mr Eafeare, who was PNG's representative in Fiji for a decade until 2015, officially took up the position late last month.

The MSG secretariat headquarters are in Vanuatu's capital, Port Vila, where Mr Eafeare will be based as deputy to the secretariat's head, Fiji's Amena Yauvoli.

Mr Eafeare has vast experience representing PNG at regional organisations such as the Pacific Islands Forum, the Secretariat of the Pacific Community and within the MSG itself.
