With five years passing since our formation, it is good to look at what PEN has managed to achieve so far.
We have a dedicated group of supporters who not only pay an annual subscription of $50, but also attend the many events we hold during the year.
While there is a churn of members, there are several who have been with us from our start in 2013.
Our ability to hold top line events is undoubtedly our biggest achievement to date.
Having MFAT located in Wellington has given us the opportunity to meet them and discuss matters we think inhibit exports to the Pacific. This means that we are "on the radar" and relevant.
We look forward to 2018 and what the Coalition Government might wish to do to accelerate Pacific exports
