Hosted by PNGAA and Charlie Lynn, MLC
The 2014 PNGAA Symposium will now be held on 17 and 18 September 2014
The Papua New Guinea Association of Australia (PNGAA) is delighted to confirm that the Hon. Julie Bishop, MP, Minister for Foreign Affairs, will be the Keynote Speaker for the 2014 PNGAA Dinner on Wednesday 17 September to be held in the Strangers' Dining Room, NSW Parliament House, Sydney, commencing 7 pm.
The dinner will commemorate the ANZAC Centenary and the centenary of Australia’s relationship with what was then New Guinea. It will be held on the evening before the Symposium.
The Symposium is a unique opportunity to hear speakers knowledgeable about Papua New Guinea in a variety of fields. This extraordinary event will take you on a journey marking the centenary of Australia's first battle of World War 1, near Rabaul in September 1914 and the loss of Australia's first submarine, AE1, to the Kiap era and on to the contemporary Australia/Papua New Guinea relationship.
If you haven’t already booked, do so as soon as possible as numbers are limited and filling rapidly. Detailed information about the Symposium and a registration form are here.
