Securing the future of the Pacific cannot be left to chance, but requires a long-term vision, strategy and commitment – Pacific Islands Forum Leaders, 2019 Communique. The Blue Pacific Continent is our home, ocean, lands and common heritage.
As Pacific Leaders, we are strongly committed to ensuring the health and well being of our people, and to human rights and equity for all. We place great value on our ocean and land, and celebrate a deep connection to our community, natural environment, resources, livelihoods, faiths, cultural values and traditional knowledge.
We work with our people to deliver on a vision that they will help to nurture. We welcome the support of our national and regional institutions in these efforts. We have often taken on challenges much bigger than ourselves. Many of our nations have gained political independence and have set new paths for their future. Our governance is maturing, and our people have much higher expectations of transparency and accountability. Our public services are supporting a gradual improvement of our well being and quality of life. Much work remains, yet we are confident of success.
