Plan review

Ioane Burese
Friday, January 25, 2013

AN independent review of the Pacific Plan will be carried out by a team of leading Pacific experts in 2013.

At their annual meeting in the Cook Islands in September, Pacific Islands Forum Leaders nominated Sir Mekere Morauta, a former Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea to lead the review.

According to a statement, following a competitive selection process, the remainder of his team has now been announced. The two Pacific Islands Forum country representatives are Peseta Noumea Simi, Assistant CEO of Finance (Aid Co-ordination Debt Management) in Samoa's Ministry of Finance, and Redley Killion, former Vice President of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) and former Senator of the FSM state of Chuuk.

The two international consultants are Peter Bazeley of the United Kingdom and Dr Nick Poletti of New Zealand.

"The consultants will have primary responsibility for producing the written outputs of the review, including a review report and a refreshed Pacific Plan, under the guidance of Sir Mekere," said Forum Secretary General Tuiloma Neroni Slade.

"Country representatives will take part in consultations for the review and will bring their national and regional experience to bear in the development of the review's written outputs."
