Minister vows support for green growth

Minister for Forests and Climate Change Patrick Pruaitch has pledged Government’s support to the Global Green Growth Institute after the recent appointment of its new director-general.

Pruaitch congratulated Yvo de Boer saying that his appointment had opened a new window of co-operation between GGGI and the Government as plans for green growth in the country and the Pacific were being pursued.

“As a newly elected council member of the assembly, PNG will continue to support GGGI and looks forward to a closer collaboration with your office on green growth in the Pacific Island Region,” Pruaitch said.

The GGGI is a fairly new international treaty on Green Growth which PNG ratified on January 31, 2013.
