NADI, Fiji, June 20 (Xinhua)-- Fijian Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama concluded the 2nd summit of the Pacific Islands Development Forum (PIDF) on Friday afternoon, calling it a success. "I have to admit that after the success of the inaugural Forum last year -- and the wonderful spirit that marked our first gathering -- I wondered whether we could keep that spirit alive. But I realize now that I needn't have worried, judging from the feedback I've received from so many of you,"said the prime minister in his closing speech.

The inclusiveness of the meeting is a great strength, said Bainimarama. "Part of the attraction of the PIDF is still its novelty value, the fact that for the first time, we all have a genuinely Pacific gathering that is also genuinely inclusive -- Governments, civil society organizations and business working together to forge a sustainable development path for us all,"he said.

The summit, themed"Green Growth in the Pacific: Building Resilient Sustainable Futures and Geunine Partnership Parterships, "gathers about 400 high-level participants from more than 10 Pacific island governments, civil society and business circles as well as observers from nations such as Morocco, Venezuela, Israel, Singapore, Kazakhstan, Kuwait and Georgia.
