Message from the Chief Executive Officer
I am happy to welcome you to register for the 2018 Pacific Water and Wastewater Conference & Expo to be held from 6-10 August in Noumea, New Caledonia.
We are grateful to the government of New Caledonia and our member utility - Caledonienne des Eaux for extending their tremendous support to host this year's conference and expo. I am certain they will showcase and extend their best to welcome you all to their beautiful cosmopolitan Pacific island, and make your visit very special.
This year we hope to bring you an array of technical papers that are tropical, relevant and appropriate to our islands but also inspire innovative solutions and forward looking action for our communities. We will also be continuing with our very successful Young Water Professionals program launched last year in Samoa.
This is a once a year opportunity not to be missed; it is the only annual event for the water and wastewater sector for the Pacific islands that brings together like-minded professionals, leaders in water and wastewater in the public and private sector, leaders in the political arena from across the Pacific- to share experiences and knowledge, learn from each other and build new relationships.
I look forward to seeing you in Noumea, New Caledonia.
Pitolau Lusia Sefo Leau
Chief Executive Officer
