McKee Visits ESP
The United States Ambassador, Erin McKee has made East Sepik the first province to visit since taking office.
Ms McKee arrived yesterday morning at Boram Airport, Wewak and was met by singsing groups led by Governor, Allan Bird and provincial administrator, Dr Clement Malau.
“It was an honour to be the first province to host Ms Erin McKee on her first official visit since her appointment to PNG and Solomon Islands,” Mr Bird said.
“As the US seeks to increase its presence in the Pacific we are interested in accessing new markets and business partners with similar principles and values to us. We intend to pursue any opportunities of mutual interest between PNG and the US.
“We look forward to this engagement with our friends in the US. Sepik is open for business.”
Mr Bird and Ms McKee are expected to hold talks regarding mutual interest between the province and the US.
