Final preparations for the United Nations Ocean’s Conference to be held in New York in June are underway.
Fisheries Minister Semi Koroilavesau says the conference will start with a world ocean festival attended by Fijian Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.
“At one stage I will have to do a brief on the preparatory work that we’ve carried out and handover the whole subject to the Prime Minister to take it on from June as the co-chair for the New York Ocean conference.”
A traditional Fijian ceremony is also expected to be part of the conference, however, details are yet to be confirmed.
Fiji will champion against the effects of climate change at the world meeting.
Koroilavesau says they’re working on the preparatory draft before it’s submitted to the Prime Minister.
