"I found this to be a fitting end to this dialogue because in a way, all 20 plus participants were mini Fishburner vessels that were sailing out in the hopes of collecting as much supplies of ideas, knowledge and networks to take back home to supply our respective island nations." - Grace Mungkaje from PNG shares her experience at the Brisbane Dialogue on Financial Education.

As we count down to the end of 2019, the team at ICDP thought it would be a great idea to take stock and reflect on all of this year’s achievements and programme developments. Another productive and rewarding year for our small team, and we are honoured to have shared it with our inspiring and close-knit Community throughout the Pacific and across Australia.

With a 6:45pm departure from Sydney, and a two-hour time difference, we did not arrive in Nuku'alofa until 2:00am. We were still met with a full terminal of people ready to joyously welcome home what appeared to be half a plane full of Tongan seasonal workers returning from several months in Australia. A very noisy and colourful welcome to Tonga!

Thinking of the Pacific often conjures up images of an idyllic tropical paradise with happy, smiling people in laid-back settings where time almost stands still. So, it may be surprising to some that the Pacific is the testing ground for some very interesting use cases of blockchain technology.
