Japanese government plans to hold SPF Conference

Date Posted: 1999-10-30

The Government of Japan has sent a request to the headquarters of the South Pacific Forum in Suba, Fiji Islands, to hold an SPF conference with Japanese officials in Tokyo next Spring. If the conference successfully takes place, it would be the 2nd conference meeting between the Japanese Government and the SPF.

The South Pacific Forum is an international cooperation organization that was established by the first Prime Minster of Fiji in 1971. This organization has 16 member countries and regions around the South Pacific area. Australia, New Zealand and Micronesia are all members. The forum tackles political, diplomatic and economic issues of countries in the South Pacific area. It is sometimes metaphorically called the “mini-UN of South Asia.

Tokyo authorities proposed to have a meeting in Tokyo because they have the intention to discuss with them the G-8 Summit Meeting that will take place from July 21st to 23rd in Nago City, Okinawa. The Prime Minister of Japan, Keizou Obuchi, that the reason of holding this conference is because they would like to borrow some opinions on environmental and economic development problems from the countries and regions of the South Pacific in view of the Summit themes. And also because the hosting site of the G-8 Summit is located near the South Pacific area. The Summit will, therefore, be a good occasion to discuss these problems that are common to Japan and other Pacific nations.
