Since the creation of the Independent State of Papua New Guinea in 1975, the European Union has been building a solid relationship with the Government, and is today a trusted and valuable partner, accompanying the people of Papua New Guinea in the political, social and economic development of their country. EU-PNG cooperation aims to help the country achieve its full potential with full respect for the values of democracy, human rights and solidarity, values that the creation of the EU itself is based on. This year 2017, the European Union and Papua New Guinea celebrate 40 years of this partnership.
