We also propose to hold an international conference on ‘Ocean economy and Pacific Island Countries’ in New Delhi in 2016,” he said.

Modi said India would be pleased to create capacity in the island states to deal with natural disasters, including through human resource development and application of space technology for early warning system and incident response. “I am pleased to announce that we will establish at least one information technology laboratory in each pacific island country. This will not only improve local IT infrastructure, it will enable us to fulfill our commitment to provide tele-medicine and tele-education to the people,” he said.
