US Builds Relationship with Oro
The United States has begun rebuilding its relationship with the government of Oro.
In a recent visit to the province, US Ambassador to Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu, Erin McKee said that her courtesy visit to the historical sites around the area was an initial step in strengthening their relationship.
To understand better service delivery from the national and provincial governments and to know how the US government can best help development, she spent two days in Oro, meeting with the Oro assembly members which included Northern Governor Gary Juffa.
For his part, Governor Juffa said it was an honour to host the US team. “People appreciated Ambassador McKee’s visit, it motivated them, especially people in the historical sites like Buna, Kokoda and Tufi,” he said. “The US government still cares for the people of PNG, especially Oro.”
