Welcome to the 49th Pacific Islands Forum by President Baron Divavesi Waqa

Ekamowir omo! The people of Nauru welcome all to the 49th Pacific Islands Forum Leaders Meeting. Some know Nauru as the smallest island nation in the world, but we have never felt this way because we are a large ocean state and a member of a much bigger family, the Pacific Islands Forum. Together, we are one ‘blue continent’ covering more than 35million square kilometers of oceanscape.
