New Australia High Commissioner for PNG

AUSTRALIA has appointed Ian Kemish as Australia's new High Commissioner to Papua New Guinea, to begin his post in February.

Mr Kemish replaces Chris Moraitis who has been High Commissioner since December 2006. He is expected to take up his appointment in February.

Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs says it is committed to assisting Papua New Guinea to achieve sustained development and alleviate poverty.

Development cooperation to PNG topped $A414 million (K1.1 billion) in 2009-10, representing over 70 per cent of the country's development aid.

Mr Kemish was most recently Australian Ambassador to Germany, and his overseas service includes Vienna, Brunei and New Zealand.

He speaks Indonesian, German and Tok Pisin.
