Louis Mapou : New OCTA Chair


On 8 July, Mr. Louis Mapou was elected President of the 17th Government of New Caledonia, succeeding Mr. Thierry Santa.

“It is an honour” and “a heavy responsibility”, said the new head of the executive, mentioning three urgent issues for the 17th government:

  • the end of the health crisis and the continuation of the vaccination campaign in order to consider lifting the travel restrictions by the end of the year
  • rescue measures for Ruamm
  • New Caledonia’s budget

As the presidency of OCTA is held by New Caledonia, Mr. Mapou became the OCTA Chair.
