In April 2017, integrity leaders from seven Pacific nations, along with leaders from the Ombudsman Republik Indonesia travelled to Canberra, Australia to attend a Pacific Leaders Integrity Meeting and the International Integrity Leaders Forum.
The International Integrity Leaders Forum was facilitated by former Deputy Secretary of the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection, Mr Peter Vardos, and provided integrity leaders with a targeted and intensive opportunity to discuss issues of leadership and organisational management with their peers.
During the Pacific Leaders Integrity Meeting, integrity leaders from across the Pacific discussed the Pacific Integrity Network and agreed priorities for the program for 2017-2018 and discussed opportunities for future collaboration. Leaders took the opportunity to provide updates from each of their jurisdictions and share key achievements and innovations.
Pacific integrity leaders agreed to reconvene in early 2018.
