A NEW book recording the political histories of the Pacific Island countries in Melanesia, Polynesia and the Micronesia will be distributed to all public and school libraries in Papua new Guinea.
The New Flags Flying is based on personal interviews that capture historical background on the regional politics and development as recorded by the founding leaders of 14 countries in the region.
PNG’s acting High Commissioner to New Zealand Morea Veratau, said the books contained first hand details of how Pacific Islands countries gained independence.
“Despite a delay in the delivery of the books, customs has cleared us and the books are safely at our shores,” Veratau said during the presentation of the books to the Education Department.
“With PNG having a lot more high schools than any other country in the Pacific Islands, more books will be shipped here.”
Education Secretary Dr Michael Tapo said the books would enhance students’ knowledge of Pacific Island countries.
“Any educational materials given to us by our neighbouring countries are welcomed as it will assist us in teaching our children,” he said.
“We value these books in good faith and we will roll out these books to schools and libraries.
“Books like these are very important as they store information on how our countries came to be and who played fundamental roles in developing the countries.”
