It seems like each week Fiji is receiving praise from another big name in the financial world for its rapidly improving economic outlook.
Once again our deliberations here in Nadi are drawing to a close, and it’s my task to formally close the Second Pacific Islands Development Forum.
I’m delighted to be here this morning to launch two new initiatives that will dramatically boost our ability to provide health care to thousands of Fijians living in remote maritime communities.
We all need to do a lot more to look after our health by eating well and exercising. Prevention is better than cure.
And pursing a healthy lifestyle is vital if we are to make any progress in combatting the non-communicable diseases that are destroying the health of our people and killing far too many Fijians – such things as high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease.

This project – which has cost $172-thousand – will benefit 75 students from two villages – 46 from Bukama and 29 from Yasawa-in-rara. I now want to say something to each of you young people.
There has never been a more exciting time to be a Fijian. You are growing up with more opportunity in 2014 than any child has had in Fijian history.

It is a truly historic day and an honour for me as Prime Minister to be with you all to launch the 75th anniversary celebration of this great town.
This regional seminar provides an opportunity for you as delegates and members of the Special Committee to gain a deeper understanding of the issues that face the 17 territories listed on the UN List of Non-Self-Governing Territories.
Providing adequate health care for ordinary Fijians is one of my Government’s top priorities. In fact, we have an obligation to do so under the Constitution.
It’s wonderful to see so many bright young faces before me this afternoon. There are now 162 students here compared to a roll of just 20 when this school was established in 1960.
I’m delighted to be here with you in the North to celebrate an important milestone in the history of this school – the opening of a new classroom block and computer laboratory.
