The visit of Italian President, Sergio Mattarella to Cameroon as from this 17th March 2016, is a remarkable one in Cameroon’s history. The Italian Head of State's visit to Cameroon barely one year after his election into office indicates that bilateral relations between both countries are flourishing. Diplomatic relations between Cameroon and Italy date to as far back as 1962 when Cameroon received the first Italian Ambassador to Cameroon. Accordingly, Cameroon’s first Chargé d’Affaires to Rome arrived Italy in 1964.

Tonga's new national climate change policy has been welcomed by the Pacific Community and the European Union. The SPC said the five-year policy aimed at achieving specific environmental, social and economic targets, and at increasing Tonga's resilience to the impacts of climate change by 2035. Over the past year Tonga's Department of Climate Change has been shaping the policy with technical assistance through the Global Climate Change Alliance: Pacific Small Island States initiative, supported by the EU and implemented by SPC.
