2012 Pacific Forum leaders meeting

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 28 - 30 Aug 2012 Location: Cook Islands

Pacific Islands Forum Leaders meet annually to develop collective responses to regional issues.

The agenda for this meeting will be released when available, including issues related to Pacific Island disaster risk reduction.

The Forum’s membership has increased from the original seven founding members (Australia, Cook Islands, Fiji, Nauru, New Zealand, Tonga and Western Samoa – now Samoa) to also include the Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Niue, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. New Caledonia and French Polynesia, previously Forum Observers, were granted Associate Membership in 2006. Current Forum Observers include Tokelau (2005), Wallis and Futuna (2006), the Commonwealth (2006) and the Asia Development Bank (2006), with Timor Leste as Special Observer (2002).

The Forum's agenda is based on reports from the Secretariat and related regional organisations and committees, as well as other issues that members may wish to raise. Decisions by the Leaders are reached by consensus and are outlined in a Forum Communiqué, from which policies are developed and a work programme is prepared.

The annual Forum meetings are chaired by the Head of Government of the Host Country, who remains as Forum Chair until the next meeting.
