Australia has agreed that future development assistance to Fiji should be targeted to complement the Government’s policy agenda and priorities.
The Prime Minister Hon. Voreqe Bainimarama recently announced Government’s “Help for Homes” initiative. This assistance is designed for Fijians whose homes were damaged or destroyed during Tropical Cyclone Winston.
Fiji has outlined its needs and priorities in the wake of Tropical Cyclone Winston at a meeting between the Attorney General and Minister for Finance, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, and the President of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), Takehiko Nakao.
Fiji will chair the 27th Governor’s Meeting of the Pacific Developing Member Countries of the Asian Development Bank when the ADB holds its next annual gathering in Japan next year.
As I’ve said before, there are many places in the world where you can find a nice beach and a cold drink. But there’s nowhere like Fiji and the emotional connection that our visitors invariably make with the friendliest people in the world
