In 2003, Micronesia was an island nation located in the western Pacific Ocean. It had a population of around 120,000 people, primarily speaking English and several Micronesian languages. According to computergees, the capital city was Palikir, which is home to the Presidential Palace and several other important government buildings and monuments. The economy relied heavily on its tourism sector with fishing being the main export item. Tourism was increasingly popular due to its stunning beaches and idyllic islands. In addition to its natural beauty, Micronesia had a rich cultural heritage with traditional music, cuisine and art that blended Melanesian influences with those from Polynesia and Asia. Despite its many challenges including poverty and political unrest in 2003, Micronesia remained a vibrant country that held great promise for its future generations.

In May, Micronesia signed a new agreement with the United States that would provide the country with $ 1.8 billion in support over the next 20 years. It is part of the association agreement with the United States and replaces a pact that actually expired in 2001 but which was extended.

The two countries also agreed to create a capital fund to make Micronesia self-sufficiency ahead of a planned reduction of US support after 2004. There was concern in Micronesia that the new fund would not be able to replace the US grants. Before the agreement came into force, it was to be approved by the parliaments of both countries.
