Excellencies,

• I am very grateful to you all for sharing your thoughts. All the issues raised today are of interest to all of us.

• Your remarks give me a much better flavour of your perceptions and priorities.

• India has always been keen to work closely with you to advance your development priorities.

• India wishes to be a close partner of the Pacific Islands.

• I would wish to announce a number of measures to strengthen this partnership.

1. Setting up of a Special Adaptation Fund of $ 1 million:

• Climate change is a major issue of concern for Pacific Island Countries.

• By setting up this Fund, India would be happy to provide technical assistance and training for capacity building to our Pacific Island Partners.

2. Pan Pacific Islands Project:

• Given the distance between the islands and poor connectivity, e-networks are an effective means for coordination.

• In keeping with the success achieved in the pan-Africa Project, we propose to develop Pan Pacific Islands Project for telemedicine and tele-education.

• We are also working on a solar energy project with the Pacific Islands at the community level. The regional hubs will be developed in the Pacific Islands.

3. Indian Visa on arrival all the fourteen Pacific Island Countries:

• I have noticed the inconvenience in travel due to Visa issues.

• I would wish to provide Visa on Arrival for nationals of all Pacific Island countries, Cook Islands, Kingdom of Tonga, Tuvalu, Republic of Nauru, Republic of Kiribati, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Samoa, Niue, Republic of Palau, Federated States of Micronesia, Republic of Marshall Islands, Fiji and Papua New Guinea.

• I am confident that this will facilitate exchanges and promote better understanding between our peoples.

4. Increase in Grant-in-Aid to Pacific Island Countries:

• Currently, we provide Grant in Aid of 125 thousand US Dollars annually to each Pacific Island Country for community projects selected by you.

• I am happy to announce that we are increasing this aid to $ 200,000 annually. This would be rolled over annually.

5. Establish Trade Office in India:

• This has been a long time request from you to promote trade between India and Pacific Island Countries.

• We are ready to support the setting up of a Trade Office at an existing diplomatic representation in New Delhi.

• We shall also provide complimentary space to Pacific Island countries during exhibitions organised by ITPO to showcase your products.

• We need to find complementarities in our trade. India could be important source of low cost medicines. 

• We can do joint research in traditional medicine. Explore options of developing healthcare facilities for the benefit of people in the region.

• Under this we can organise seminars and invite friends from the region. This would help to explore new ideas for strengthening our mutually beneficially economic cooperation.

9. Space Cooperation:

• We can look at possibilities of sharing data that could be used for monitoring climate change, disaster risk reduction and management, resource management.

10. Forum of India-Pacific Island Cooperation: • Lastly, given the response I have received today, I propose that a Forum for India – Pacific Islands Cooperation (FIPIC) be held on a regular basis. The next meeting can be held in 2015 in one of the coastal location in India.

Siddharthnagar, Etah, Hardoi, Pratapgarh, Fatehpur, Deoria, Ghazipur, Mirzapur and Jaunpur get new Medical Colleges
“Double Engine Government of Uttar Pradesh is the result of decades of hard work of many Karma Yogis”
“The name of Madhav Prasad Tripathi will continue to give inspiration for public service to the young doctors coming out of the medical college”
“Purvanchal, Uttar Pradesh previously maligned for meningitis will give a new light of health to Eastern India”
“When the government is sensitive, there is a sense of compassion in the mind to understand the pain of the poor, then such accomplishments happen”
“The dedication of so many medical colleges is unprecedented in the state. This did not happen earlier and why it is happening now, there is only one reason - political will and political priority”
“Till 2017 there were only 1900 medical seats in government medical colleges in Uttar Pradesh. The Double Engine government has added more than 1900 seats in just the last four years”

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi inaugurated 9 Medical Colleges in Siddharth Nagar, UP. These nine medical colleges are in the districts of Siddharthnagar, Etah, Hardoi, Pratapgarh, Fatehpur, Deoria, Ghazipur, Mirzapur and Jaunpur. Governor and Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh

Addressing the event, the Prime Minister said the Union Government and the Government of Uttar Pradesh is the result of decades of hard work of many Karma Yogis. He said that Siddharthnagar has also given such a dedicated public representative in the form of Late Madhav Prasad Tripathi ji to the country, whose tireless hard work is helping the nation today. He added that to name the new medical college of Siddharthnagar after Madhav Babu is a true tribute to his service. The name of Madhav Babu will continue to give inspiration for public service to the young doctors coming out of the college, the Prime Minister said.

The Prime Minister remarked that with the creation of 9 new medical colleges, about two and a half thousand new beds have been created, new employment opportunities have been created for more than 5 thousand doctors and paramedics. “With this, a new path of medical education has been opened for hundreds of youth every year”, he said.

The Prime Minister said Purvanchal’s image was spoiled by the previous governments because of the tragic deaths due to meningitis. The same Purvanchal, the same Uttar Pradesh is going to give a new light of health to eastern India, Shri Modi remarked.

The Prime Minister recalled the episode in Parliament where current Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath ji, as the Member of Parliament, had narrated the agony of the poor medical system of the state in the Parliament. The Prime Minister said today, the people of Uttar Pradesh are seeing that Yogi ji, given a chance to serve by the people, has stopped the progress of encephalitis and saved the lives of thousands of children of this area. “When the government is sensitive, there is a sense of compassion in the mind to understand the pain of the poor, then such accomplishments happen”, the Prime Minister remarked.

The Prime Minister said that the dedication of so many medical colleges is unprecedented in the state. “This did not happen earlier and why it is happening now, there is only one reason - political will and political priority” emphasized the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister explained that previous governments in Delhi 7 years ago and the government in Uttar Pradesh 4 years ago, used to work for votes and used to get satisfied just by announcing some dispensary or some small hospital for votes consideration. The Prime Minister said for a long time, either the building was not built, if there was a building, there were no machines, if both were done, there would be no doctors and other staff. The cycle of corruption, which looted thousands of crores of rupees from the poor, used to relentlessly run round the clock.

The Prime Minister said before 2014, the medical seats in our country were less than 90,000. In the last 7 years, 60,000 new medical seats have been added in the country. Here in Uttar Pradesh too, till 2017 there were only 1900 medical seats in government medical colleges. Whereas in the government of double engine, more than 1900 seats have been increased in just the last four years.
