Speaking at the event this morning, PIPSO’s Chair Howard Politini complimented the organisation for this milestone.

POLITINI: “PIPSO has great plans and has expectations from their members and stakeholders around the region, who convened and actively participated in July this year for a 4-day interactive workshop to deliberate and finalise the organisation’s strategic focus in the next 4 years.”

The new Strategic Plan 2016- 2019 was supported by the European Union via the “Strengthening Non-State Actors Engagement in Regional Policy Development and Implementation Programme”, implemented by the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat (PIFS). 

EU Ambassador Jacobs: ”The Pacific private sector faces great challenges, such as access to markets, the high cost of transportation and lack of business knowledge, to name but a few. It also has excellent potential – for instance the Pacific has great products from the land and the sea, it has expertise in innovative and traditional design, and tourism presents many more opportunities. The EU is supporting PIPSO in its efforts to help unleash the potential of the Pacific private sector.” 

The new website is available at www.pipso.org.fj
