Pacific pension, superannuation, trust and sovereign fund operators want to know how to investment in key infrastructure within the region.

Last week a meeting was held in Samoa, called by the Pacific Islands Investment Forum - which is a representative body for these groups.

It says they want to see how to spur investment in essential infrastructure, such as telecommunications, water, financial services, transport, sustainable energy and health.

A financial sector specialist with the International Finance Corporation, Aaron Levine, was also there, with his organisation offering advice to the PIIF.

Mr Levine told Don Wiseman what the group want to achieve and how they might go about it.
