Our Partnerships

Pacific Islands Private Sector Organisation (PIPSO)

The Pacific Plan adopted by the Forum Heads of Governments in October, 2005 recognised that regional stability and security will be achieved through economic growth, improved governance and social equity. The importance of the private sector to the sustainable development and growth in the Forum Island Countries (FICs) is recognized by Governments. This view is reinforced by the outcomes of recent meetings of Forum Leaders in August 2010 in Port Vila, Vanuatu and the Forum Economic Ministers at Alofi, Niue in October 2010. Since the establishment of PIPSO in 2007, and with the development and its implementation of its five year business plan, PIPSO has made significant progress in undertaking work and programmes in the private sector of the 14 pacific Islands countries. PIPSO is committed to excellence and best practices in the conduct of all its affairs. PIPSO recognizes that sustainable development in the region will only come about through functioning and effective partnerships involving Governments, civil society, regional organizations and development partners.

Vision: A region of opportunities for all people to grow and prosper.

Mission: To be a pivotal partner in harnessing resources to bring about real growth and prosperity for the region.

The Vanuatu Chamber of Commerce & Industry is a member of PIPSO.
