The Salomon Islands


Philippe Germain with Milner Tozaka, Minister for Public Services of the Salomon Islands.

New Caledonia does not currently have an established cooperation relationship with the Salomon Islands.

However, the Government of New Caledonia seeks to strengthen its bilateral relations with neighboring countries belonging to the Melanesian Arch, including the Salomon Islands. An exploratory mission to Honiara took place in early 2017 to identify the main areas in which cooperation could be developed. It will be followed in late 2017-early2018 by a mission of economic diplomacy led by the President of the Government, to lay the foundations for a Draft joint Bilateral Cooperation Plan involving the two countries.
