THE Pacific Plan Review 2013 team is inviting all stakeholders to take part in the Pacific Plan Review for next year.

Former Papua New Guinea prime minister and chairperson of the Pacific Plan Review 2013, Sir Mekere Morauta said all stakeholders should make submissions so the review document would be inclusive.

"Over the past seven years, the Pacific Plan has been true to the leaders' intent that it be a living document," Sir Mekere said.

"The Pacific Plan has undergone a number of updates to its priorities.

"However, the regional and international context has changed since the plan's inception and it is now time for the plan to undergo a more comprehensive review and refresh," he said.

Sir Mekere said the Pacific Plan review 2013 would be open and consultative as possible, substantive and far-ranging.

"In addition to accepting submissions through the website platform, next year we will travel to all forum member countries and associate member countries for consultations.

"Details of our travel will be uploaded on the website as the itinerary is confirmed."

Sir Mekere's role as chairperson for the Pacific Plan Review 2013 is to provide overall guidance and leadership to the review team and to travel to forum member countries to complete consultations with leaders and a wide range of other stakeholders.

He would also oversee the production of the review report and a refreshed Pacific Plan.

Submissions for the Pacific Plan Review will close in May 2013.

The purpose of the review is to build regional consensus on the future direction of the Pacific Plan and provide a platform for prioritising regional integration and co-operation efforts in the Pacific over the next decade.
