China studies Forum proposals

1:26 pm on 24 August 2006

China is studying several proposals submitted by the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat during a recent visit by Secretary General, Greg Urwin.

One of the key proposals was the idea of establishing a Joint Taskforce to coordinate, develop and monitor the implementation of the assistance package announced by Premier Wen Jiabao in April this year.

A number of Forum members have requested the Secretary General to pursue this with the Government of China.
