New Ireland conducts voluntary repatriation of settlers

The New Ireland (NI) provincial government is conducting a voluntary repatriation exercise for settlers who have lived there for more than a decade, according to The National.

The first batch comprising of 148 people from the highlands provinces arrived in Lae on Tuesday where they would be transported back to their respective provinces.

David Yaplin, who assisted with the repatriation exercise, said this was the first batch of three of settlers to leave the province.

He said those from coastal provinces would make up the other two batches.

The repatriation exercise is voluntary.
