Enabling prosperity across the Pacific
In November 2022, the first AIFFP funded pilot boat, purpose-built for PNG Ports Corporation (PNG Ports), was launched in a ceremony attended by Papua New Guinea Minister for State Enterprises, the Hon William Duma MP and Australian Minister for International Development and the Pacific, and Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Pat Conroy MP.
An Independent Review of the AIFFP’s first two years in operation has found that the AIFFP is responding to needs of the Pacific and Timor-Leste and has become the second-largest infrastructure financier in the Pacific.
October Budget 2022-23: Unlocking opportunities and boosting connectivity through quality, climate-resilient infrastructure
The Australian Government has expanded investment in climate infrastructure, doubled the AIFFP’s grant funding, and strengthened the AIFFP’s capability through the October 2022-23 Budget.
Australia, through the AIFFP, will boost its support for Fiji’s economic recovery and climate-resilience with a AUD72 million concessional, results-based financing package. This will support the renewal of more than 1.5 million square metres of road surface and replacement of nine key bridges through the Fiji Transport Infrastructure Restoration Project.
