Cook Islands Research Association looks at the present crisis and at the future

The association is holding its annual conference on 5, 6 and 7 February 2009 on the future of the Cook Islands and the Pacific.

But because of the effects of the current world financial crisis on the Cook Islands already, and with much more expected, we were asked to open a public discussion on that topic.

SO the previous day, Wednesday 4th February 2009, is being devoted to an additional conference entitled “The Economic Crisis Forum” at which the views of government, business, NGOs and any interested members of the public, will be expressed and discussed.
