The meeting also addressed how the Forum Troika mechanism can enhance regional unity and solidarity, coherence and collective action, and transformative initiatives in securing the future of our region, through the implementation of 2050 Strategy for the Blue Pacific Continent.

The Forum Troika will work towards enhancing partnerships for prosperity for the Pacific people, through the theme of “Our Voices, Our Choices, the Pacific Way – Promote, Partner, Prosper” delivered through our 2050 Strategy and Implementation Plan.

Forum Troika is an important step in the buildup to the 52nd Pacific Islands Forum Leaders to be held in Rarotonga, Cook Islands from the 6 to 10 November 2023.
