Several island leaders to attend 32nd Association of Pacific Island Legislatures conference

 


GUAM  - Several island leaders and members in the health care industry will be taking part in the 32nd Association of Pacific Island Legislatures general assembly conference next week. APIL president, Speaker Judi Won Pat says this year's general assembly will focus on two topics: alternative renewable energy and affordable health insurance for our Pacific communities.
 
"So it's going to be a really good general assembly and there's so many interest in this from the regions because it's not just the two member delegates but other members from the legislative and executive side coming as observers" Won Pat announced.
 
Based on the assembly's proposed agenda, Guam's health insurance providers along with the Guam Regional Medical City are expected to make presentations along with invitations made to the Department of the Interior and the Hawaii state energy office. Won Pat adds senators Rory Respicio and Chris Duenas will be accompanying her as part of Guam's delegation. The APIL includes American Samoa, CNMI, Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei, Yap, Marshall Islands, Palau, Nauru, Kiribati, Hawaii and Guam. The conference is set for June 24th to the 27th in Hawaii.
