Leaders from across the Pacific region will be gathering next month for the 51st Pacific Islands Forum (PIF) and related meetings from 11-14 July 2022 in Suva, Fiji.

Chaired by the Prime Minister of Fiji, the Honourable Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama, the meeting will be an opportunity to strengthen relationships and reset goals and priorities for regionalism and collective action as a Forum Family.

“The 51st Pacific Islands Forum is an opportunity for us to gather and celebrate 50-years of Pacific regionalism through the Pacific Islands Forum, and to reflect on and honour what it means to work together towards shared aspirations and objectives,” said the Forum Chair.

The Forum Meetings in Suva will culminate in the launch of the 2050 Strategy for the Blue Pacific Continent which has been developed over three years and consulted widely across the region.

The Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva and the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat in Ratu Sukuna Rd, as well as other key landmarks will host a range of meetings and events from July 11- 14, including public-facing festivities and talanoa events, dialogue with civil society and private sector leaders.
