The Ministry for Pacific Peoples is hosting an event to celebrate the success of Pacific people who received the New Year and Queen’s Birthday Honours over the last three years.

The event is to celebrate Pacific leaders who have been honoured for their service from 2015 to 2017. This is a platform to celebrate the success of these highly regarded individuals, recognising their amazing talents and their advocacy to make a difference within Pacific Island communities.

This includes the success of Dame Valerie Adams, honoured as the youngest New Zealander and first Pacific person to be appointed a Dame Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit at last year’s New Year's Honours, and Sir Michael Jones being awarded the Queen’s Birthday Knight Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit at this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours.
