The United States of America will be represented by a high level delegation at the 46th Pacific Islands Forum hosted by Papua New Guinea in Port Moresby, next week.

The US contingent will be led by Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources, Heather Higginbottom, and the state department contingent will include senior officials from the United States Pacific Command, the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
