On 8-10 February, 2023, the Embassy of Japan organized an Official Development Assistance(ODA) Press Tour, inviting journalists from a total of four newspaper and TV station companies to visit Japan’s ODA Project sites in Wabag and Wapenamanda, Enga Province and Joyce Bay at the suburb of Port Moresby. The participants observed the sites of school buildings, iron bridges, a storage center of vaccination support, hospitals and a sewage treatment plant that were supported by Japan.
The purpose of the ODA Press Tour was to familiarize PNG media with Japan’s commitment in assisting the economic and social sectors. The tour provided an opportunity for the media personnel to get a first-hand experience of how the economic cooperation through Japan’s ODA is being carried out in partnership with the Government and people of Papua New Guinea.
The PNG Media were introduced to the following projects:
