Previous Pacific Regionalism Submissions

Inclusivity is at the heart of Pacific regionalism. This means ensuring everyone has an opportunity to inform the standing meetings of Pacific Leaders and Ministers.

Each year the Forum Secretariat oversees an inclusive and public process that allows the people of the Pacific to submit initiatives that can help drive regionalism.

Any interested stakeholder can submit an initiative but it must be in line with the values and objectives outlined in the Framework for Pacific Regionalism and it must meet the tests for regional action.

The Secretariat compile all submissions and they will be considered by a specialist sub-committee of the Forum Officials Committee who then pass their report on to the Forum’s Foreign Ministers and ultimately to Forum Leader.

The Framework for Pacific Regionalism says that regional policy-making and implementation will be guided by its six Pacific regional values. Click on the boxes below to see previous submissions to the Forum Secretariat organised by those values.
