The article focuses on the Papau New Guinea (PNG) National Fisheries College that was built by the Japanese at Kavieng in New Ireland as part of its foreign aid program. The author sees this as a gesture of goodwill, considering how keen Japan was to enter the PNG tuna fishery. The author claims there has been a thriving Japanese fish smoking plant on the Nago Island at Kavieng that converted fresh skipjack into dried katsuo-bushi.
