PNA leaders to meet

Saturday, February 24, 2018

A SUMMIT next week in Majuro will bring together the leaders of the eight nations that control waters where most of the world's skipjack tuna is caught.

Eight heads of state are expected to be in Majuro on March 2nd for the Parties to the Nauru Agreement talks on the future of the tuna industry in the central and western Pacific.

Papua New Guinea Prime Minister Peter O'Neill and heads of state from Tuvalu, Kiribati, Solomon Islands, Nauru, the Federated States of Micronesia and Palau are expected to join the Marshall Islands President Hilda Heine in Majuro for the summit.

This is the second PNA leaders summit.

The first was in 2010 in Palau.

The Marshall Islands Marine Resources Authority director, Glen Joseph, who chairs the PNA group, said the summit would allow the group to showcase its success and discuss its plans for a value added integrated approach to fisheries.
