With Prime Minister Narendra Modi's arrival at PNG's capital city Port Moresby on Friday, the Indian diaspora in Papua New Guinea (PNG) were immersed in a festival-like celebration.

The members of the Indian community in PNG said that they were delighted with the visit of PM Modi to PNG.

"We love you Modiji. Welcome to Papua New Guinea," a group of three little girls said in a cheerful way.

"PM Modi's arrival in Papua New Guinea will improve the presence of PNG in the South Pacific," said another person, adding the world should take inspiration from the kind of development PM Modi has done in India.

A child was present with a painting of PM Modi and Mahatma Gandhi.

"PM Modi is a selfless leader, he is a global leader and his arrival will improve PNG-India relations," said a woman. She added, "Welcome Modiji."

A man said, "Today PNG PM Marape touched PM Modi's feet. This kind of respect for India was earned by PM Modi."

"Due to PM Modi's visit, the whole world will get to know of PNG," he added.

PM Modi is set to co-chair the 3rd Summit of the Forum for India-Pacific Islands Cooperation (FIPIC III Summit) on 22 May during his Papua New Guinea visit. He will be accompained by his Papua New Guinea counterpart James Marape.

The FIPIC Summit will see participation from leaders of 14 countries. The FIPIC was launched during PM Modi's visit to Fiji in 2014.

Apart from the FIPIC engagements, PM Modi will also have bilateral interactions with Papua New Guinea Governor-General Sir Bob Dadae, Prime Minister Marape and some of the other PIC Leaders participating in the Summit.

Following this, PM Modi will travel to Sydney at the invitation of Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.

The Prime Minister is on a six-day visit to three countries -- Japan, Papua New Guinea and Australia from May 19 to 24.

This tour comprises the G7 and Quad summits which were held in Hiroshima and the ensuing bilateral meeting with Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, and hosting the third summit for the Forum for India- Pacific Islands Cooperation (FIPIC) in Papua New Guinea.
