Blue Pacific 2050 strategy tops 51st PIF program – FBC News

Implementation of the Pacific Blue Continent Strategy 2050 will be high on the agenda at this week’s Pacific Islands Forum in Suva.

PIF Secretary General Henry Puna said the 2050 strategy charts a long-term path for the region with a focus on tackling common challenges.

“It is very important because we need a strategic path to bring the whole region together because there are so many challenges that we are facing now. Climate change, post-pandemic recovery and increasing geopolitical interest in our region. We must be united if we are to meet these challenges. »

Puna said the strategy, which is led by the Forum Officials Sub-Committee and chaired by Fiji and Vanuatu, will be presented at this year’s Forum.

PIF President and Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama also said that this strategy sets out a long-term vision to drive our political and development aspirations and our approaches to critical challenges.

Bainimarama adds that the region is committed to working closely with the Forum to find solutions that benefit everyone.

The Pacific Islands Forum will take place over three days, starting on Tuesday.

A number of foreign ministers from the region arrived in the country last week to hold a series of meetings ahead of the Forum.

The Prime Ministers of Australia and New Zealand, as well as Commonwealth Secretary General Patricia Scotland, will also be part of the forum.

International media are already in the country and are currently participating in a week-long Media Masterclass with local media at Suva’s Holiday Inn.
