PNG Trade Minister Richard Maru's take on this is that PNG will be at the receiving end of imbalance in trade.

Maru says the agreement seems to give Australia and New Zealand more flexibility to push their exports into PNG shores while PNG may is not yet ready to equate that import with its exports.

He was more concerned of balance in trade than looking at the development aid package proposed.

This makes sense here, and according to Maru PNG might be also looking at other trading partners apart within the Asia Pacific that would give trading benefit.
