Preparatory Meeting for the Establishment of SOPAC (than CCOP/SOPAC) The preparatory meeting for establishing a co-ordinating body for offshore prospecting in countries of the South Pacific region was convened at Manila, Philippines from 17 to 21 July 1971. It was attended by representatives of Australia, Solomon Islands, Fiji, New Zealand, PNG and Tonga. Samoa (than Western Samoa) & Nauru were unable to attend this preparatory meeting but informed the meeting by letter that they wished to support the establishment of a coordinating body for offshore prospecting in the South Pacific. Cook Islands had expressed interest in becoming members of CCOP/SOPAC but were unable to send a representative to the First Session. The representative of the Condominium of the New Hebrides attended the meeting as an observer. In view of the inexperience of Pacific Island countries, hope was expressed that the ESCAFE Secretariat would give serious consideration to the establishment of a co-ordinating body for the South Pacific region, similar to the existing CCOP.
