On this first International Day commemorating the victims of acts of violence based on religion or belief, we pay tribute to all those around the world who lost their lives and suffered attacks because of their religion or belief. Persecution as a response to religious belief or affiliation, or lack thereof, is a violation of international law and requires joint work to combat it.

The European Union has been represented in Papua New Guinea since 1977. The fight against climate change is one of the top priorities of the European Union, and it strongly supports a global and united approach for climate action that is reflected in its projects here in Papua New Guinea. In the framework of the second Climate Diplomacy Weeks to be held this year from 23 September to 06 October, the EU Delegation in PNG is organising a Bilum making & Film making competition for PNG youths in High School and University.

Le Bureau de l'Union Européenne en charge des PTOM du Pacifique a rencontré ce mercredi 7 août le nouveau président du gouvernement calédonien Thierry Santa.

Based on the development priorities of Papua New Guinea (PNG), the EU Support to Rural Entrepreneurship, Investment and Trade in Papua New Guinea (STREIT PNG) aims at improving sustainable and inclusive economic development and job creation in the Momase Region, with a specific focus on women, youth and climate change. The Project will enable ‘hard components’ (transport infrastructure, energy access) to be connected with ‘soft components’ such as financing, training, market access, trade and other value chain support services for commodities, facilitated by the sustainable implementation of digital technologies, services and solutions, under a conducive business environment in order to foster and stimulate climate resilient rural development activities. The geographical scope of the project will initially be focused on the East Sepik and Sandaun provinces. After the mid-term review of the project, cocoa value chain development activities will be considered for expansion to the neighbouring provinces of Morobe and Madang for those activities that require heavier localised investment.

With European prosperity and Asian peace and security closely connected, the European Union has decided to strengthen its security cooperation in and with Asia. This is also in line with the steps taken by the EU in the past years to strengthen its role as a global security provider.

As we mark the International Criminal Justice Day, the European Union reaffirms its longstanding support towards the international criminal justice system and in particular its unwavering commitment to the International Criminal Court (ICC), as part of the EU's wider commitment to a rules-based international order.
