Milestone agreement

Felix Chaudhary
Wednesday, June 25, 2014

A MEMORANDUM of understanding was signed between the Secretariat of the Pacific Community and the Pacific Islands Development Forum in Nadi on Friday, forging a commitment to work together to address issues relating to sustainable development in the region.

The four-year MOU was signed by SPC director general Dr Colin Tukuitonga and PIDF interim secretary general Feleti Teo during the Second PIDF Summit last week.

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.

"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.

"PIDF stands to benefit tremendously from this partnership, especially in the technical areas of mutual interest where SPC has been the preferred regional service provider."

The MOU will be reviewed after two years.
