The French Polynesian government says the French President, Jacques Chirac, will make an official visit to Papeete in late July.
A spokesperson in Tahiti says the confirmed dates are July 23rd until July 25th.
It will be his third visit to the territory and it will conclude a regional tour that will also take in a visit to Australia and New Caledonia.
The French Polynesian government has also invited leaders from Pacific Island countries to Papeete for a meeting with President Chirac.
The proosed summit is being described as an opportunity to rebuild ties with Pacific nations.
In the mid-1990's France ignored regional protests and resumed tests of its nuclear weapons.
