That administrative union was renamed as Papua New Guinea in 1971. Notwithstanding that it was part of an administrative union, the Territory of New Guinea at all times retained a distinct legal status and identity until the advent of the Independent State of Papua New Guinea.

During this time, Rabaul, on the island of New Britain, became a major Japanese base (see New Guinea campaign).
