2013 PIDF Conference
The Inaugural Conference of PIDF was held at the Sheraton Fiji Resort, Denarau Island, Nadi, from 5 to 7 August 2013. The theme of the meeting was, ‘Leadership, Innovation and Partnership for Green/Blue Pacific Economies.’ The Forum attracted more than 300 stakeholders from more than 40 countries of which 14 of them from the Pacific. Several high-level representatives from the Pacific graced the Forum with several Heads of State, Heads of Government, Ministers and Deputies, Ambassadors, CEOs and Civil Society leaders contributing passionately towards the programme of the Forum.
This inaugural meeting provided the perfect opportunity for multi-stakeholder visioning and discussion on the Green Economy and the PIDF process. The presence of so many stakeholders was a sign, both of stakeholders’ commitment to the Green Economy and of the important role the PIDF will play in tomorrow’s development agenda.
