Over the past several years, the United States has stepped up its engagement with the Pacific Islands region—a strategically important area with deep historical ties to the United States. In an effort to more effectively address the needs of the Pacific, the Biden administration released the first-ever Pacific Partnership Strategy in 2022 and hosted two U.S.-Pacific Island Country Summits in Washington in 2022 and 2023. 

Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield, Representative of the United States to the United Nations, recently led the U.S. delegation to the Pacific Islands Forum Leaders’ meeting in the Cook Islands. In this fireside chat with Kathryn Paik, Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield will share her thoughts on priorities for U.S. engagement in the Pacific and discuss how the United States and the international community can best meet the needs of this critical region.
