As a key initiative under the Trilateral Partnership for Infrastructure investment in the Indo-Pacific, Australia, the US, and Japan have invested approximately AU$40 million in the project, along with Palau. Australia’s contribution, including management of US funding, is being delivered by the Australian Infrastructure Financing Facility for the Pacific.

The project will ensure more reliable and secure digital connectivity which will translate into improved government services, access to information to improve education and health services, and entrepreneurial opportunities that contribute to prosperity, particularly important during the COVID-19 pandemic.
