The Fijian Green Bond is mutually advantageous to both investors and the people who ultimately benefit – providing both financial returns and critical assistance for vulnerable people on the ground. And this is what I am most proud about - connecting this great Exchange – through this Green Bond - with ordinary Fijians on the other side of the world.
Friends, we must not be defeated by the scale of the challenge we face. We must make the hard decisions to enable the solutions that we know are out there to flourish more rapidly – the accelerating action that brings us together today.

If your home was totally destroyed or suffered severe structural damage you qualify for $7,000 in relief assistance. Those funds can go towards the reconstruction of your home and to cover the replacement costs for your lost possessions or household items, that includes television sets, furniture, housewares; anything of value in your home that was damaged by the rains and flooding.
I want to issue an appeal to every Fijian today to treat these incidents of flooding with the absolute seriousness they deserve. Do not attempt to cross swollen rivers and streams. Stay out of the floodwaters altogether. Don’t try to drive through water covering the road. Because as we’ve seen, your vehicle can easily be swept away with tragic consequences. And parents: Keep your children from playing in or around flooded streets, creeks and drains.
My Government has worked to put into place robust competition laws and policies, and we actively partner with strong institutions like the FCCC to ensure that these rules are enforced.

It is an honour to welcome the New Zealand Defence Minister and your delegation to Fiji and we look forward to more high-level visits in the future, including your Prime Minister, when the demands of a new baby permit it. We’re very good with babies here in Fiji so it will be warmly welcomed too.
In the next five years, even more investment will be made to upgrade and expand our existing divisional hospitals, making room for more beds, providing more services, and creating an overall better experience for those seeking treatment.
Make no mistake, every nation on earth is put at-risk by our changing climate, but Pacific nations face an extreme and unique vulnerability, and that must be reflected in our NDCs.
Today, we are here not only to celebrate forests and sustainable cities, but to also advocate forests and trees as essential for maintaining resilient ecosystems, production systems, communities, towns, cities and islands and most importantly, our lives. Our goal for today is to encourage all of us look at our cities and towns differently.
