Real progress was made: Bainimarama

LITIA CAVA
Wednesday, July 13, 2016

Update: 4:37PM THE regional bond between Pacific Island people builds common challenges, common interests, and a shared destiny says Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.

This morning while delivering his handing-over as chair of the Pacific Island Forum (PIDF) to Solomon Islands PM Manasseh Sogavere, Mr Bainimarama said real progress was made on building the forum in the past three years.

"When I look back at the conception of this forum, how it sprang from an ideal and faced no small amount of opposition, I marvel at what we have been able to accomplish. 

"And over the past three years, we have reaffirmed and consolidated its purpose through our actions, and we have convened leaders and citizens in open and inclusive dialogues that are aimed at solving problems. I'm not sure how many international forums can make that claim," Mr Bainimarama said.
