The fifth Young Pacific Leaders Conference took place in Honolulu, Hawaii on 11-12 January, through a partnership between the East-West Center’s Pacific Islands Development Program (PIDP) and the U.S. Department of State.
A diverse and highly selective group of 26 young men and women from across the independent Pacific states, Australia, New Zealand and the United States were chosen to participate in the conference. In addition, six outstanding alumni of previous conferences were invited to participate for a total of 32 Young Pacific Leaders.
This conference provided emerging Pacific leaders, aged 25-35, with new skills and knowledge to advance the region’s economic vibrancy and civic engagement, thereby contributing to regional security and development.
