Beyond aid – Changing our relationship with the Pacific

Beyond aid – Changing our relationship with the Pacific

October 2018

Government, community and business leaders from New Zealand and across the Pacific will gather in Wellington to help ‘reset’ the relationship between New Zealand and the Pacific.

Earlier this year, the government announced it’s ‘Pacific Reset’. The Council for International Development’s (CID) annual conference in Wellington on Monday 29 October is an opportunity for NGOs and the Pacific to respond.

“There’s real optimism about modelling a different way of working together. We’ll bring government, NGOs and business together to help define the ‘reset’, from both a New Zealand and a Pacific point of view.

“We are lucky to have an exceptional line up of speakers from New Zealand and the Pacific.”
Keynote speakers:
Rt Hon Winston Peters, Deputy Prime Minister & Minister of Foreign Affairs
Hon Mark Brown, Deputy Prime Minister of the Cook Islands,
Speeches will be followed by a panel discussion with Pacific community and business leaders from New Zealand and the Pacific:
• Peter Fa’afiu (Chair of Pacific Media Networks, and Amnesty NZ)
• Caren Rangi (Director Cook Islands Investment Corporation )
• Kiki Maoata (Head of Pacifika Medical Association)
• Pene Lafale (Director/Climate analyst at LeA International)
• Josiah Tualamali'l (Chair of Pacific Youth Leadership and Transformation Council)
• Anna Powles (Author and Senior Lecturer in Security Studies Massey University)
• Emele Duitutaraga (CEO PIANGO, Pacific NGO umbrella organisation)
• Traci Houpapa (Non-Executive Director Treasury Board & Chair of Federation of Ma?ori Authorities)
