Clinton passing through PNG


By WATSON GABANA

WORLD’S most powerful woman, United States Secretary of State Hilary Rodham Clinton is visiting
Papua New Guinea this Thursday. Mrs. Clinton will hold bilateral meetings with senior government members and local civil society leaders to discuss environmental protection and women’s empowerment
during her short stopover. The US Embassy at the moment is tight-lipped on the secretary’s visit. In a statement provided by US State Department spokesman, Ian Kelly, Mrs. Clinton will be in the country on Thurs, Jan 14. The Embassy’s public affairs officer Kimberly Strollock said that the secretary’s schedule in PNG was not finalised but information would be disclosed “as soon as it is available”.
Mrs. Clinton will deliver a policy speech on Asia-Pacific multilateral engagement in Honolulu on Jan 12 before flying across the Pacific Ocean to Papua New Guinea. The news of the secretary’s coming is driving women leaders in our country frenzy. Several prominent women leaders went on air in the FM100 talkback show appealing for all women to come together to meet with Mrs. Clinton. “We need to come together and
voice our concerns about the effect of climate change in this country,” one woman leader said over the
radio.
