Visit to Republic of the Marshall Islands and the Republic of Nauru
This week I will travel to the Republic of the Marshall Islands and the Republic of Nauru to further strengthen Australia’s ties with our Pacific family.
In the Republic of the Marshall Islands, I will officially open Australia’s embassy which commenced operations last year.
I will also be putting to air the first Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) radio programme on the Republic of the Marshall Island’s national broadcaster in six years.
I look forward to meeting His Excellency President David Kabua, Foreign Minister Kitlang Kabua, other Members of Parliament, and community leaders to discuss climate action and enhance our security, environmental, cultural and economic partnerships.
In Nauru, I will meet newly elected President His Excellency Russ Kun to discuss our shared priorities such as climate-resilient infrastructure, connectivity, economic opportunities and pandemic recovery.
I will also launch a new partnership with Nauru and the Australian Football League (AFL) to support young athletes in Nauru, Papua New Guinea and Fiji.
This will be my eighth visit to the Pacific as Foreign Minister, and the first ministerial visit to the Republic of the Marshall Islands since 2018, demonstrating the priority the new Australian Government places on our region.
