Forum to discuss Vanuatu's intent to defer hosting Leaders Summit

The Chair of the Pacific Islands Forum and Prime Minister of Tuvalu, Kausea Natano, will consult the Forum Membership and advise on the next meeting of the Pacific Islands Forum.

The Government of Vanuatu has formally advised the Forum of its intention to defer the 51st Pacific Islands Forum Meeting scheduled for 4 - 7 August 2020 to next year.

The Vanuatu National Taskforce recommended to the Government to defer in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

A meeting of the Vanuatu Council of Ministers discussed the recommendation at a meeting last month.
