Our relationship with Micronesia
New Zealand and Micronesia share common interests in issues affecting the Pacific region such as climate change, development, sustainable fisheries management and security. We also work with Micronesia though our membership in the Pacific Islands Forum.
Micronesia is a group of 607 small islands stretching across the Pacific to the north of Papua New Guinea, with a population of 105,000. It's an independent country in free association with the United States, and one of the North Pacific Compact States, along with the Marshall Islands and Palau.
