NZIIA Annual Conference 2023 - Regional Programme Australia and the Pacific
Entitled ‘International Solutions: Aotearoa New Zealand’s Place in a Troubled World’, the Conference provided a platform for experts from Government, business, academia, and non-Government organisations both from New Zealand and overseas to discuss the most important international affairs issues of our times. Keynote speakers included the Hon Nanaia Mahuta - the then Minister for Foreign Affairs, the Hon Sitiveni Rabuka - Prime Minister of Fiji, and the US Assistant Secretary of State, Daniel Kritenbrink.
The presenters covered a wide range of topics, including 1A Indo-Pacific competition, confrontation or collaboration?, 1B improving public understanding of international affairs, 2A enabling international commerce, 2B addressing indigenous rights on an international scale, 3A Pacific solutions for the climate crisis, 3B digital transformations in international affairs, 4A new strategies for defence and security in the Pacific, and 4B where to next for multilateral and regional institutions.
As intended by the host, there was a clear focus on solutions in international affairs rather than just detailing the global challenges.
