A MEMORANDUM of understanding was signed between the Secretariat of the Pacific Community and the Pacific Islands Development Forum in Nadi on Friday.

The four-year agreement forging a commitment from both organisations to work together to address issues relating to sustainable development in the region.

The MOU was signed by SPC's director general Dr Colin Tukuitonga and PIDF interim secretary general Feleti Teo during the second PIDF summit.

The two bodies have already agreed to work together on youth and green growth initiatives after recognising the huge potential in the contribution that young people can make towards sustainable development in the Pacific.

"The signing of the MOU with the region's largest provider of scientific and technical services — SPC — is a huge milestone in the growing recognition and acknowledgement of the meaningful role that PIDF will contribute to regional efforts to achieve inclusive sustainable development," said Mr Teo.

Although the MOU came into effect immediately, the agreement will be subject to review after two years and renewed by mutual consent at the end of the fourth year.
