Abstract

Micronesia in Review: Issues and Events, 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2016 Reviews of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Kiribati, and Nauru are not included in this issue. The period covered by this review was one of reckoning for the long-term sustainability of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) as a political and economic entity. The FSM engaged in a renewed effort to stimulate economic development, appreciate the fragile natural ecosystems long enjoyed and safeguarded by the people of the FSM, and reexamine the desirability of what is perhaps the country's most consequential bilateral relationship. As the scheduled termination of the major financial provisions of the amended Compact of Free Association (cofa) between the FSM and the United States nears, the FSM's national and state governments--as well as the general populaces they serve--grappled with the purpose, promise, and predicaments of the federation and strove, in various ways, to establish a solid foundation for a federation that would be independent in truth as well as in law. From the outset of his administration, FSM President Peter M Christian exhibited a clear-eyed appreciation of the federation's challenges and shortcomings. During the joint inauguration ceremony on 10 July
