Pacific Plan Review Report to Leaders made available to the public

The Statement below is from the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat. The FSM is a Forum Member.

The keenly anticipated final report from the Pacific Plan Review 2013 is now available online. The Rt. Hon. Sir Mekere Morauta, the Review’s chair, submitted the report to Leaders on October 31st, calling for “a new level and quality of political debate, policy and cooperation at the regional level”.

The Review report presents 36 recommendations to Leaders, including the development of a new Framework for Pacific Regionalism – “better to guide the region through the short term and to secure the long term in a way that properly reflects the values and diversity of the region while managing the common natural resources on which all Pacific islanders depend”.

At their meeting to consider the report in early December, the Forum Officials Committee agreed that it could be made public—while noting that its recommendations were still under review by Leaders.

Copies are now available for download from the Review website (, or can be requested in print or electronic form from the Forum Secretariat.
