Climate change and the impacts of sea level rise, the Tuvalu-Australia Falepili Union, and strengthening relationship with Taiwan are among the list of priorities for Tuvalu’s new government.

The new MPs were elected to their seats in January but it took over a month before they were able to converge in the capital Funafuti and elect a prime minister because MPs were stuck in the outer islands due to severe weather and transport challenges.
