Thank you for coming to meet with me this morning on a Sunday. It is an indication of your commitment to and the high value we place as well on the great relationships, professional relationships across the Hong Kong Government and its regulatory agencies.

The Prime Minister of Australia, Malcolm Turnbull and the Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea, Peter O’Neill met today in Vietnam in the margins of the 2017 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum.

During the meeting, both Prime Ministers committed to working together to lay a new undersea high speed telecommunications cable from Australia to Port Moresby, supporting the future digital economy in Papua New Guinea and facilitating closer economic integration between the two neighbours.

This is an important opportunity to further strengthen our cooperation on trade, investment, innovation, law enforcement and combating transnational crime.
