Further, Ministry hemi need blo increasim ol negotiations wetem tufala bigfala partners blo yumi lo region lo side blo visa-waiver special arrangements blo specified periods olsem wei ol distant partners blo yumi lo European Union mo ol narafala bilateral partners oli mekem. Hemi important blo sapotem stronger economic integration insaed lo region blo yumi.

Wan important samting too wei istap kam wan issue hemi membership blo yumi lo ol regional mo internasonal organisations.
