The Pacific Islands Forum secratariat has confirmed that this year's annual Forum will be held in Samoa from August the 5th to the 7th.

The Forum secretariat says the dates were set after consultations with the government of Samoa as the next Forum host.

The meeting was originally scheduled to be held in Niue but was moved because of the devastation caused by Cyclone Heta to the island's infrastructure.
