The relationship between Australia and Papua New Guinea seems to have been given an injection of goodwill during a visit by the Foreign Minister Bob Carr.

Ahead of today's annual PNG-Australian Ministerial Forum Senator Carr traveled to the highlands with his PNG counterpart.

He rejects criticism that his government has neglected the relationship and says he's keen to see PNG play a more prominent role in the region.
