The Mua Voyage will play an important role in highlighting the challenges faced by Pacific island countries, says Attorney-General and Tourism Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

He made the comment during the official send-off of the Mua Voyage at the University of the South Pacific’s Laucala Campus foreshore yesterday.

Fiji’s Uto ni Yalo, Samoa’s Gaualofa and Cook Islands’ Marumaru Atua left for Port Vila, Vanuatu; for their next destination on this voyage to Sydney, Australia to attend the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) World Parks Conference.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said the voyage was an important one and they would keep the tradition alive.

The Mua Voyage will convey the Pacific Island’s message to the world about Our People, Our Islands, Our Ocean, Our Future at the IUCN Congress which  takes place in Sydney from November 12-19.
