A reply from the Department of Foreign Affairs:–

Here is the reply to my letter about books to PNG schools addressed to the Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs, Julia Bishop.

Reading this response it appears that Australian aid money will no longer be available to PNG for the direct supply of books to schools. Instead the money will be available to the PNG Government to strengthen its systems to deliver items such as books to schools. I hope very much that schools receive more books soon but I doubt very much that this policy will result in more books to schools.

Your opinion on this matter would be very welcome on these pages.
