Michael Somare reshuffled his cabinet twice and dumped Bart Philemon, the finance minister widely credited as the architect of Papua New Guinea's economic recovery. Record prices for oil and commodities gave the government economic growth and a record surplus. The country's relations with Australia reached a new low over the arrest of Julian Moti, the Solomon Islands' attorney general, in Port Moresby.
