Join us for a special two-day dialogue on island nations' perceptions of regional priorities and challenges in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. This forum will create a platform for government and non-governmental actors to exchange experiences and explore the strategic, economic, and diplomatic dynamics between island states and major outside powers.

This special program will feature keynote and special addresses by Maldives Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Ahmed Khaleel; Fiji's Permanent Representative and Ambassador to the UN Satyendra Prasad, and the Foreign Secretary of Sri Lanka Jayanath Colombage.

Due to security barriers set up for the UN Generally Assembly in New York, all in-person attendees should enter the Japan Society via 2nd Avenue and 47th Street. At the security checkpoint, be prepared to share your name with officials to proceed to the venue for the Islands Dialogue. If you encounter any challenges, please call Kathryn Hockman,  +1 (612) 310-3207.
