Given Australia's status as PNG's top aid donor, with $596 million in assistance in 2020-21, and our close bilateral ties including our support for PNG's response to the COVID-19 crisis, will the Australian government press PNG to be mindful of our national security concerns in relation to China? Will the government propose to PNG any specific alternatives to replace the proposed fishing vessel projects at Daru?
