The Millennium

The focus of the world will clearly be on the South Pacific prior and during the year 2000. Events of global interest will be hosted in the area.

The America's Cup will be staged in New Zealand during the summer of 1999 and the year 2000.

The Olympic Games is set for the year 2000 in Sydney, Australia. Yachting and Olympic Gantes disciplines will be travelling to this part of the world to acclimatise and gain experience in our South Pacific environment.

There will be a massive movement of people world-wide leading up to this period. The Pan Pacific and South East AsiaWomen's Association will appropriately become of age in the new Millennium with its 21st International Triennial Conference to be held in Rarotonga, Cook Islands in the year 2000.

This celebration of the new millennium, a period of 1,000 years is also described as a future period of great happiness for everyone.


The Conference

Rarotonga, the capital island of the Cook Islands will be the venue for the 21st International Triennial Conference in the year 2000. Modern facilities are available for the use and comfort of Conference delegates. This beautiful tropical island has a mountainous interior with verdant valleys that spill downwards to white sandy shores and the gentle lapping waters of aquamarine and crystal dear lagoons. The protective reef encircles Rarotonga like a white gardenia necklace.
