Nago being considered site for Pacific Islands summit

Date Posted: 2010-11-04

The central government is thinking Nago City should be host for the 2012 Pacific Island Summit for a third time.

Yoshito Sengoku says the government is “making final arrangements” for Nago to host the spring 2012 event, which brings the other 16 countries of the Pacific Islands Forum to Japan. The Chief Cabinet Secretary says the summit venue is being decided at a ministerial-level meeting.

The 17-nation forum includes Australia, the Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, New Zealand, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, the Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. Japan began hosting the Pacific islands summits in 1997, with one held every three years. Nago, which hosted the 2000 G-8 Summit, has hosted the Pacific Islands Summits in 2003 and 2006.
