Australia is committed to stepped-up engagement for a more resilient Pacific. A stable, prosperous, peaceful and resilient PNG is critical to Australia's interests. We are PNG's largest development partner; its main partner on economic and security issues; and its most active supporter in helping it respond to the COVID-19 crisis.

The proposed new economic development partnership (the Partnership) will be the main vehicle and coordination point from which Australia will deliver our economic development aid to PNG. It will deliver assistance through five pillars. The new Facility underpins Australia's efforts to create a stable and prosperous PNG. Our economic assistance will help PNG better convert its natural endowments into sustained broad-based growth and create a more diversified economy, a goal in Australia's 2017 Foreign Policy White Paper. The new Facility will also implement the PNG-Australia Comprehensive Strategic Economic Partnership (CSEP) which has objectives to support macroeconomic and fiscal reforms, strengthen financial management, assist small and medium-sized enterprises and promote women's economic empowerment.

A two step collaborative procurement process is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2021.
