Professor Prasad talked about developing massive businesses in a way to help them thrive in a new geo-economic landscape.

The Pacific region is looking to fix the perception of being viewed as powerless small states by forming closer economic ties with other areas.

He also mentioned that the region wants the world to recognize it for its big oceanic states with a notable stake in the future of humanity.

Biman Prasad highlighted the Pacific’s role as the largest continent in the world, commonly known as the blue continent.

What’s interesting to note here is that Australian High Commission Charge D’Affaires Stuart Watts confirmed the authorities have been thinking of visa-free travel for a long time, and the matter is under consideration.

The Finance Minister stressed that New Zealand and Australia should remain integral parts of the Pacific without any room for division.
