The Jet Newspaper – In February 2014, four countries – Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Tonga and Vanuatu – commenced with a pilot clustering initiative, the first ever for the Pacific islands region. This pilot project has since concluded and a review workshop is to be held on the 11 & 12 August 2014 in Nadi, Fiji, to assess the project work to date.
The workshop brings together the pilot teams from the four countries, national private sector organisation representatives and development partners. The workshop is to hear from the pilot and PIPSO teams who have been working on the cluster initiatives and to share learning’s of the pilots in the countries, including the challenges and how these have been addressed, and their plans through a forward agenda.
