Modern Papua New Guinea
In the early 1900's the part
of the island controlled by the Germans was occupied by Australia. By 1949 the former
& British colonies were administered jointly by Australia under a United Nations mandate. In
1975 Papua New Guinea
became an independent nation. Strong ties remain between Papua New
Guinea & Australia.
