The National Environment Service together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Immigration, recently joined the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) in celebrating 30 years of dedicated service to the Pacific region and the environment.

Honorable Minister Nicholas further noted and thanked SPREP for being “a steadfast partner in the development of our nation’s environmental policies and programs.”
Ministry of Foreign Affairs Secretary Tepaeru Herrmann delivered an inspiring speech calling on individuals, organisations and government to take responsibility in safeguarding the environment for future generations.
