The recently formed Pacific Freedom Forum has joined the International Freedom of Exchange which is meeting in Norway.
A PFF founding member, Lisa Lahari Williams, says PFF will work with the Pacific Islands News Association to champion Media Freedom and Freedom of Expression in the Pacific region.
Ms Lahari-Williams has told the IFEX meeting in Oslo it was worth it for her coming all this way.
IFEX is a global network of 81 non-governmental organisations that promotes and defends the right to freedom of expression.
Members include Human Rights Watch and Reporters Without Borders.
