The Pacific Leaders endorsed the 2050 Blue Pacific Strategy in July 2022. To support the 2050 Strategy, the Blue Pacific Economic Strategy (BPES) concept note, which outlines the key economic tenets that will shape the economic strategies and pathway to deliver the 2050 Pacific strategy, was tabled and approved by the Forum Economic Ministers Meeting (FEMM) in August 2022.
At the FEMM 2022, ministers.
To avoid confusion in the terminology between the 2050 Blue Pacific Strategy and Blue Pacific Economic Strategy, the BPES has been renamed the Pacific Roadmap for Economic Development (PRED), to support the 2050 Blue Pacific Strategy.
The approved PRED concept note outlines the core envisaged regional economic goals of the next 30-years to be to (i) Grow and Diversify the Economic base, (ii) Strengthen Economic Defenses from Shocks, (iii) Optimize Blue Economy Potential, and (iv) Future Proof Pacific Economies. Against these key goals, the concept note outlines the key strategic economic considerations and contextualizes the impact of the pandemic on the economic strategies for recovery, which will be the core focus in the short-term. This will shape the economic pathway trajectory for the medium to longer term and help inform a clear economic development transformation roadmap for the Pacific.
Objective of the Terms of Reference (TOR)
The objective is to develop the PRED, including an implementation plan, a monitoring and evaluation framework, and resourcing plan, based on the concept note endorsed by FEMM (Appendix 1). The PRED will also consider the nexus between economic security and the blue economy, specifically the economic security considerations in light of heightened geo-political risks, contagion into the Pacific and the need for strategic regional economic pivot (Appendix 2).
