The Annual Pacific Islands Forum Leaders’ Lecture follows on from the series of public lectures delivered by eminent Pacific Leaders with a focus on the Pacific Plan which were part of the activities to mark the 40th anniversary of the Pacific Islands Forum last year.

The theme of the Lecture by the Forum Chair was: A New Optimism – A More Dynamic Pacific Plan

“This year’s Lecture is of particular significance as the Forum prepares for a review of the Pacific Plan next year. The Annual Pacific Islands Forum Leaders’ Lecture gives an opportunity for Leaders to talk about some of their experiences and challenges in implementing the Pacific Plan which was endorsed in 2005 and also their vision for the future of the region,” Tuiloma Neroni Slade, Secretary General of the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat said.

“As the Forum Leaders’ Secretariat we are very privileged and honoured that the Forum Chair has accepted our invitation to deliver this address so soon after becoming Chair in August this year,” said Mr Slade.

“The Secretariat acknowledges the assistance from the AusAID-funded Pacific Leadership Programme towards hosting the Lecture.”
