Five top priority issues will now make the agenda for the Pacific Island Leaders’ summit in Port Moresby, PNG, next month.

Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat has presented the five priority issues for leaders to address in regards to greater regionalism.

The issues were identified by the recently created Specialist Sub-Committee on Regionalism and have been presented to the Forum Officials Committee who met in Suva last week.

Sub-Committee called for public proposals and received 68 proposals.

PIF Secretary General Dame Meg Taylor says the issues raised reflected community expectations of the role Forum leaders could play.

The five issues are increased economic returns from fisheries and maritime surveillance; climate change and disaster risk management; information and communication technology; West Papua and cervical cancer.
