Koror, Palau—The Asia Pacific First Ladies Summit 2019 – Palau successfully concluded a series of three high-profile events, held between December 9 and 11, 2019, in Koror, Palau. Five current first ladies (Palau, Kiribati, Nauru, Papua New Guinea and Mariana Islands) along with three former first ladies (Fiji, Kiribati and Marshall Islands) attended. In addition, more than 500 delegates from 38 nations were at the Ngarachamayong Cultural Center for the summit.

During the inaugural session, the International Association of First Ladies for Peace, a project of The International Summit Council for Peace (ISCP) was launched. Although first ladies (and first gentlemen) do not have legal positions in government, they nonetheless have tremendous power and influence.

In the afternoon there were two sessions: “The Role of Women Leaders in Addressing the Critical Challenges: Solutions and Best Practices,” which was followed by “Palau: Preserving the Environment through Cultural Wisdom.”

The next morning, on December 11, in the same venue as the inaugural session, the Interfaith Family Festival was held. On stage was the presidential couple, the President of Palau H.E. Tommy Remengesau, and First Lady Debbie Remengesau, along with other first ladies and international dignitaries.
