Papua New Guinea has again been voted as the "top dive destination" in the Pacific and Indian Oceans by the largest dive publication in the United States.

With a circulation of 50 thousand, Scuba Diving Magazine is the largest dive publication in the US.

As well as best destination, PNG placed first in the Marine Life, Visibility and Healthiest Marine Environment categories.

In support of these awards is a comprehensive article on PNG by world-renowned underwater phootgrapher and travel writer Michelle Westmoreland.

The article coincides with this week's announcement of the 'Lukim PNG Nau' Tousim Expo, which will be presented by the PNG Tourism Industry Association in Port Moresby in March.

Tourism Promotion Authority chief executive officer Peter Vincent said the expo would allow the industry members to promote PNG.
