Kiribati President Taneti Maamau says they are overjoyed to be back in the Pacific Island Forum.
Speaking after his bilateral meeting in Nadi, in the margins of the Leaders Special retreat, Maamau said as Pacific Islanders they are stronger together as a family if they are united.
Maamau said we also share many common resources that are part of the blue Pacific Ocean.
“As a Pacific Island, part of the global family, the way we think in broader terms. You can’t do things by yourself. You need to in order to allow the work of the region as well as the development essence/assets of your country to move forward. “We can’t do things alone, especially in this era where the global challenges are so profound and unpredictable.”
Maamau said this is where our identities are interlinked and intertwined.
