PILON MEETING IN THE COOK ISLANDS, 4th -10th December 2007

After two consecutive years of deferral of its application to be an Observer at PILON, it now seems set that PIMLA will be granted Observer Status and also as a founding member alongside SPREP, FFA, PIFS and SPC at this forum in Rarotonga. This is in accordance to the recommendations and draft Charter prepared by the interim PILON Secretariat currently housed at the Attorney General’s Department in Canberra. That is certainly good news for PIMLA which mean it can work collaboratively with other legal counterparts in maritime matters affecting the region. 

The programme for the meeting is as follows and PIMLA has been invited to make a presentation on its functions and activities that should ultimately make a difference in the maritime sector in the region. This is a fait accompli as there has been support for PIMLA from a number of legal officers in the region since its inception in July 2005.

The focus of PILON this time is to formalise its charter as an entity and how it should position itself to deliver services to legal offices in the region.
