Pacific Media Summit

Pacific Media Summit to go ahead in Tonga

There were some concerns about whether the regional meeting would go ahead in Nuku’alofa, after the main island of Tongatapu and Eua island were devastated by Cyclone Gita last month.

Acting Chief Executive of Tonga’s Ministry of Communications, Dr Tevita Tukunga has written to Pacific Islands News Association to say that the media summit will go ahead from 7-11 May, 2018.

About 150 delegates are expected to participate in the week-long event.

The theme of this year’s biennial gathering is “Empowering the Media for Digital Challenges.”
