“We (UPNG) would do our best to assist Solomon Islands in tertiary education,” he said.

Mr Sogavare also encouraged Solomon Islands students at UPNG and Pacific Adventist University to be good ambassadors while in PNG, and must provide the leadership needed in their country after graduation.

Prof Hynes hosted a lunch for Mr Sogavare last Saturday at the Waigani campus Drill Hall.

After a two week official visit to Taiwan, Mr Sogavare spent Saturday in Port Moresby during which he attended a church service at the Sogavare Memorial SDA church at Gerehu with his wife Emmy, reuniting with his family and the Solomon Islands community including Solomon Islands students at UPNG Waigani and Taurama campuses, and the Pacific Adventist University (PAU).
