“Papua New Guinea has granted approval for 175 Chinese citizens to return to PNG to complete major infrastructure projects around the country.
“The controller of the National Pandemic Response David Manning said those returning included construction managers and employees of major Chinese state-owned enterprises.
“They are involved in work on big government infrastructure projects which are behind schedule. Despite border restrictions in place in PNG due to the pandemic, the government wants the projects to resume.
“The controller said the Chinese would be required to do a mandatory seven day medical check before flying into the country. They will also undergo 14 days quarantine in designated hotels in Port Moresby upon arrival.”
