The Pacific Islands News Association (PINA) Ltd is the premier regional organisation representing the interests of media professionals in the Pacific region. It links radio, television, newspapers, magazines, online services, national associations and journalism schools in 23 Pacific Island 

The regional media organisation was formally registered as a Company Limited by Guarantee on 23 January 2014.

In November 2004, PINA officially merged with the Pacific Islands Broadcasting Association (PIBA) to become the only voice of the regional media in the Pacific. PIBA was established to look after the interests of public broadcasters until the merger.
