perhaps of interest
Donor agencies based in the region has praised the Cook Islands for being the first in the region to come up with its National Sustainable Development Plan launched last Thursday.
The plan is a follow up of the Pacific Plan endorsed by regional leaders and focused on the sustainability of the region.
Although the Cook Islands plan received some criticism for not providing solutions to country problems the SPC, SOPAC and the UN has committed their assistance in helping the Cook Islands with its long term development plans.
Meanwhile the Deputy Prime Minister Dr Terepai Maoate lashed out at crticism that the plan provided no answers to the problem of migration or de-population.
Dr Maoate raised concern that the problem was with outer islands people leaving to come to mainland Rarotonga and overseas because their islands was undeveloped.
The Cook Islands NSDP also focuses on development of the outer islands within its four year framework.
Dr Maoate also said that he was disappointed that noone during the two day forum came up with a remedy to solve the de-population and other problem which raised crticism at the forum.......end
