  5. 5. “In July 2006, 13 Australian Church visitors stayed home for one week and ate local food. That started my hotel business, informal and without an official opening.” - Ms Ellis Waragat, Owner & Operator, Kokopo Lodge & Tours Ltd, East New Britain, PNG
  6. 6. “Our business believes in letting food be thy medicine and 90% of all that we use is sourced from the informal economy.” Mrs Repeka Uluilakeba, Owner/Operator, Highland Natural Healthy Vegan Food Shop, Suva, Fiji
  7. 7. • Agriculture, Trade, Tourism & Health (ATTH) linkages absent in NDS → Tourism Industry & Promotional Authorities are involved (e.g. Sol Is) → More hotels developing their own gardens • ATTH linkages need not just “whole of government” approach but also “whole of nation approach” → need for partnerships (industry + traditional chiefs & churches) • Significant agrifood exports unlikely (e.g. PNG infrastructure & climate change) • Voice of SMMEs/informal sector → dialogue & collaboration • Upcoming MSG PSD meetings in Honiara → Cooperatives (19 Sep) → Small Business Development Centres (20 Sep) → Heads of Investment Promotion Agencies (21 Sep) → Private Sector & Civil Society Dialogue (22 Sep) European Union Concluding Points
