THE University of the South Pacific will host a special function to mark its one-year partnership extension with Australia and a new three-year partnership with New Zealand.

Both Australia and New Zealand are key partners of the university.

The new arrangements will allow USP to work more closely with the governments of Australia and New Zealand to ensure the sustainable development of the Pacific region.

The partnership extension with Australia is worth approximately $A13.5million ($F24.8m) and the partnership with New Zealand is for $NZ15m ($F22.1m) over three years (2013-2015).

Acting Australia High Commissioner Glen Miles and and acting NZ Head of Mission Phillip Taula will be present at the launch this evening.

USP vice chancellor Professor Rajesh Chandra said the two countries had traditionally been the strongest development partners ever since the university was established in 1968.

He said they continued to be among USP's closest development partners.
