Minister Brown announced that Rarotonga would be hosting a combined meeting of the Pacific Forum Economic Ministers (FEMM) and Pacific Forum Trade Ministers Meeting (FTMM) as well as the Private Sector Dialogue workshop (PSDW) will be held from 27 to 31 October 2015.
MFEM and MFAI will be working closely with the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat on the logistics of the meeting.
Minister Brown was looking forward to the meeting. “I expect to work closely with my colleagues from the Pacific on economic governance issues across the Pacific during that week. The last joint meeting between the Finance Ministers and another Ministerial meeting was in Honiara where a number of measures to combat NCD’s were announced. Obviously, there will to be some natural synergies between the private sector across the region and the economic and trade Ministers.”
