Guam - The Association of Pacific Island Legislatures reconvened today with its board of directors spending most of the day in executive session. The close to two dozen delegates from 12 island governments discussed resolutions in the areas of economic development, governmental and cultural affairs, and trade and commerce.
Pohnpei senator Edgar Lickaneth says the APIl moving in the right direction, saying, "There are a lot of issues in terms of common issues that are affecting our region in terms of insurance, the environment, non-communicable disease, those are some of the major issues that we would like to have a common collective solution to this issues."
Lickaneth chairs the APIL Health and Environment Committee. The APIL 54th Meeting meanwhile concludes Friday with presentations on a digital society in Micronesia, tele-health in the Blue Continent and challenges in Micronesia.
