The President of French Polynesia, Edouard Fritch, received an audience last Thursday.

The Deputy Secretary-General of the Pacific Islands Development Forum (PIDF), Penjamini Tuikubulau Lomaloma, visited Tahiti during the Regional Conference for Countries and Territories Overseas (OCTs) Pacific.

For this first visit to French Polynesia from a representative of PIDF, Mr Lomaloma wanted to present to the authorities of the country the mandate and deadlines ahead of its organisation.

The Forum, launched in 2012 in Fiji, brings governments and private sector organisations and civil society willing to work together for the sustainable development of the Pacific Islands and the fight against the effects of climate change.

The PIDF wants to institutionalise its efforts by establishing a founding treaty in 2015. French Polynesia is cordially invited to join the new organisation knowing that it has regularly attended meetings that have taken place since the launch of the initiative in 2012.

President Fritch welcomed the many initiatives to bring Pacific Islanders around the challenges that affect them and welcomed with sympathy the PIDF approach.
