Each EU mission works in the framework of a comprehensive approach. The mission works in agreement and coordination with the EU Delegations in the same area and in the framework of EU regional policies.
Six laboratories in three provincial centres may no longer have to wait for results of testing for export
food products from Port Moresby in the future, following the completion of a training programme to
assist laboratories to prepare for international accreditation. When the laboratories attain
international accreditation, they will be recognised internationally, meaning their test results will be
accepted by importers and consumers throughout the world. For exporters of local food products, this
will reduce the cost and time it takes to meet requirements of export markets; thus improving economic
and trade prospects.
The Delegation of the European Union to Papua New Guinea offers two internships for a period of 10 months beginning May 2018 through to February 2019. This is the first time that this opportunity will be offered at the European Union Delegation to Papua New Guinea. The EU's internship programme has however been offered at many other EU Delegations worldwide, with many young university graduates benefiting from this rich experience at a Delegation, including many Europeans who later became career EU officials.
