The Solomon Islands government says preparations are well underway for the leaders' summit for the Pacific Islands Development Forum.
The meeting is to be held on the 11th and 12th July in Honiara, the first time it will have been held outside Fiji.
The PIDF was created by Fiji's Frank Bainimarama when Fiji was suspended from the Pacific Islands Forum.
Mr Bainimarama had asserted there was too much influence from Australia and New Zealand in that body.
Theme of this year's PIDF meeting is "Stewardship for Healthy Oceans and Healthy Nations".
