The Minister of State at the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office says there are increasing business opportunities for UK businesses in Papua New Guinea.

Hugo Swire is in PNG on the first leg of a tour of Melanesia which also takes in visits to Vanuatu and Solomon Islands.

Mr Swire met with leaders of PNG-based UK businesses on Tuesday in Port Moresby, and says the UK is working hard to build trade links in the region.
