Canberra: Australian Foreign Minister Penny Wong is scheduled to travel to New Zealand and Solomon Islands.

"This is my third visit to the Pacific since being sworn in last month," Wong said in a statement on Wednesday.
"I am delighted to be visiting  Aotearoa New Zealand for the first time as Foreign Minister. Our countries are tied together by the deepest bonds of friendship, shared values, history and sacrifice – bonds which were reaffirmed during New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s meeting with Prime Minister Albanese in Sydney last week," she added.

In New Zealand, she will meet her counterpart, New Zealand Foreign Minister Nanaia Mahuta, for Foreign Minister Consultations.

"New Zealand is an indispensable partner in our ambitions for a stronger Pacific family. As part of our discussions, we will consider ways we can work together, to make the most of the new energy and resources the Australian Government is bringing to the Pacific. There are new possibilities for collaboration with New Zealand in support of regional security and on climate change. I also look forward to drawing on New Zealand’s experiences as Australia develops a First Nations foreign policy," she explained.

On Friday, she will visit Solomon Islands, where she will meet Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare and a number of his Cabinet ministers.

"I also look forward to engaging with the local community, including women leaders. We are committed to deepening our cooperation with Solomon Islands, as we work together to face shared challenges and achieve our shared goals, including on climate change. I look forward to discussing the ways we can continue to make progress on pandemic recovery, economic development and labour mobility priorities, and addressing our shared security interests," she concluded.
