MSG summit to be held by April

7:17 am on 19 January 2011

The Melanesian Spearhead Group summit that was supposed to be held in Fiji last year will now be held in the first quarter of this year.

Fiji Village reports the decision was made by cabinet today following the formal handing over of the MSG chairmanship to Fiji during a special summit last month.

A reconciliation ceremony was held last month in the Solomon Islands after former Vanuatu Prime Minister Edward Natapei refused to hand over the chairmanship to Fiji's interim Prime Minister, Commodore Frank Bainimarama
