Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says the fact the Pacific Leaders will be sharing a room with the US President and the entire machinery of the US government, tells us how far we have come.

While speaking during the US-Pacific Summit in Washington DC, Bainimarama says they look forward to working with the US to better integrate our economies, improve flows of trade, strengthen our education and links, increase two way tourism and exchange and link our cultural institutions and better link our schools and community organizations.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says this Summit is the latest effort on the part of the current US Administration to hear directly from the Pacific Leaders about their priorities, ideas, hopes for the future of the region and the world and how they can work together to achieve that.

Blinken says the US shares their vision and are committed to help realize it.
