Abstract

The Pacific subregion is the world’s most dynamic geographic region, encountering huge daily challenges due to the small size of the islands in terms of area and population, their remoteness as they are spread widely across the vast Pacific Ocean, and their vulnerability to natural disasters and climate change threats. In this context, improving connectivity of the Pacific subregion with other parts of the world using submarine cable and satellite technologies is being considered as the most crucial enabler for economic and social well-being.
