This morning (local time), as the Pacific Island Forum winds up towards the official opening this afternoon, NZ PM Helen Clark has been holding bilateral meetings with Pacific Island leaders and the PIF Secretary General Greg Urwin.

Among the issues discussed were:
- The Pacific Plan
- Her attendance at the NGO forum closing celebrations last night
