This aligns with the aspirations envisioned in the National Constitution of Papua New Guinea.

PNG NATIONAL ACTION PLAN

There were three commitments under the Cluster 1 (Freedom of Information) and implemented in NAP 2018-2020. The first Commitment concerns Legislation on Access to Information. The objective is to develop a Legislation on Access to Information that will enable greater participation of citizens in the management of public affairs. The initial attempt was made by the Department of Information and Communication Technology (DICT) to draft the Access to Information Bill in late 2019 but was interrupted by the Covid-19 restrictions. This commitment is to be continued in the second NAP 2021-2023 with sufficient funding and stakeholder consultations and complete the Access to Information Bill and submit to Parliament for endorsement.
