Australia urged to support civil society and reform in PNG

From , 5:07 am on 28 September 2015

Australia's senate has been told that the government's aid programme in Papua New Guinea enables rather than remedies state fraud and market distortions in PNG. This is according to the International State Crime Initiative which says Australia's aid goals in Papua New Guinea would be better served if it provided more support to civil society efforts to foster reforms within the PNG state.
