15 JULY 2011 SUVA (MINFO) - The Assembly of the International Seabed Authority (ISA) has elected Fiji’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Peter Thomson, as its President for the ISA’s annual session currently underway in Kingston, Jamaica.

The Assembly is the supreme body of the ISA, consisting of delegations from 161 member states. Following in the footsteps of former Fiji Ambassador and ISA Secretary-General, Satya Nandan, Fiji has played a prominent role at the ISA since its inception.

ISA was established by the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, and Fiji was the first signatory to the Convention on 10th December, 1982.
