Submission: A 2050 Strategy for the Blue Pacific Continent

by Allan Behm and Richie Merzian

The Australia Institute made a submission to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Consultation on the Pacific Islands Forum (PIF) 2050 Strategy.

The submission supports the initiative of the PIF’s 2050 Strategy for the Blue Pacific Continent, but the Department’s consultation questions do not tackle the core strategic problems – what are Australia’s policy objectives, how do these objectives intersect with those of other PIF members, and what are the tools at each nations’ disposal to achieve them?
