The National University of Samoa's Vice-Chancellor and President has described the 2nd PIURN conference as a great success.

 An educational three days of deliberations where so much has been touched on. A total of 55 presenters from around the Pacific Region presented well on various issues.

“Activities of this nature of academic researchers reflects well upon ourselves, in relation to our environment, and to the bigger world and of course bigger issues like climate change, indigenous knowledge and land issues," said Pro. Fui Leapai Tu’ua ‘Ilaoa Asofou Soo.

On day one presenter talked mainly on issues with climate change and in relation to our daily lives and our environment. On the second day of the conference, presenters mainly presented on indigenous knowledge, our culture and everything else versus developments. On the final day, presenters focused more on land issues.

“This is the stage for researchers to disseminate their findings and inform others who have not had the opportunity to research on these areas," Prof. Fui said.

Presenters including students studying for their Masters degrees also had the opportunity to present their research done on conference themes. As the host, the NUS benefited in many ways because all lecturers from the university could sit in and listen. Samoa’s economy is also benefitting because many researchers traveling from overseas inject money into our economy. Now that the conference closes, French Polynesia is preparing to host the 3rd PIURN in 2018.
