Abstract

Micronesia in Review: Issues and Events, 1 July 2010 to 30 June 2011 Reviews of Kiribati and Nauru are not included in this issue. In August 2010, Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) President Emanuel "Manny" Mori traveled to Vanuatu to attend the 41st meeting of the Pacific Islands Forum. While in Vanuatu, on 4 August, Mori signed a Partnership for Development Agreement with the Australian government. Through jointly determined technical and financial assistance, the agreement will support FSM efforts to implement development strategies geared toward sustainable economic growth. In exchange for Australian assistance, "the FSM Government will pursue its development through appropriate budgets, laws, policies, strategies and programs; will optimize the use of aid to achieve this development; and will continue to work towards its Millennium Development Goals" (fsmis Press Release, 13 Aug 2010). The World Health Organization (WHO) became the most recent international organization to establish a presence in the Federated States when it opened a new Country Liaison Office (clo) on 16 August 2010.
