Papua New Guinea's Port Moresby General Hospital (PMGH) is carrying out a car park and road facelift in preparation to receive Princess Anne next month, chief executive officer Dr Paki Molumi says.
Princess Anne is visiting the country as part of Queen Elizabeth’s platinum jubilee celebrations and it will be her second visit to Papua New Guinea.
“The Walter Strong doctors’ car park has been closed temporarily as construction company Matrix Construction does some maintenance work,” he said.
“The exterior of the building facing the car park is also expected to receive a fresh coat of paint along with some interior refurbishments.
“The funds for the car park and road facelift were donated by Hebou Construction.
“The upgrade of the building is funded by the National Events Council and PMGH.”
Dr Molumi said as part of Princess Anne’s visit she would unveil the plaque at the National Heart Centre.
Minister in charge of national events, Justin Tkatchenko, said the Princess would also visit other locations in Port Moresby such as Motu-Koitabu villages, the St John Ambulance Service and schools subject to clearance by her security team and protocol staff.
He said the last time the Princess Royal was here was some 17 years ago.
He said she would be accompanied by her husband Timothy Laurence and would be here for two days before returning to England.
