The issue that confronts us is one of the most vexed and painful for any nation that values human rights - the great suffering we have all witnessed as a result of the mass movement of refugees and migrants from troubled parts of the world. 

My Government will be there, every step of the way, as we work to expand the reach of this technology and spread the benefits of 4G Plus as widely as possible. So this is indeed an occasion worth celebrating, but in doing so, I would be remiss not to address some of the pitfalls of such rapid ICT development.
People of faith are important in a free society, a free society like we now have in Fiji. People of faith give a voice to morality and ethics. They demand good government, justice and social responsibility. When people of all faiths come together in tolerance and understanding, when they love and respect each other and work for the common good—then peace, justice and prosperity will flourish.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Fiji is open for business. And on behalf of the Fijian people, thank you all for the contribution you are making to help us to build a more prosperous future.
As we come together today to officially open the 2016 Session of the Parliament, we have reached the midpoint of the current four-year term. And the Fijian Elections Office is already well advanced in its preparations for the next election in 2018.
It is a great honour for Fiji to co-host the 8th Annual AFI Global Policy Forum – the first meeting of the Alliance to be convened in the South Pacific. And on behalf of every Fijian, welcome to our nation and welcome to Denarau.
Our Constitution may be our supreme law and the law from which all other laws flow. But it is not a document gathering dust on a lawyer’s shelf. It is a living document. A document relevant to every Fijian. A document for every Fijian to read and re-read. A document for successive generations to cherish. And to defend and protect, which is why our men and women in uniform are also part of this commemoration.
Physical activity doesn’t have to mean joining a gym. Working in your backyard garden, playing with your kids, or taking the stairs instead of the elevator are, but some examples. It is all about moving the body. Walking is free, it is easy, and it is something we can do just by stepping out the door. We are all aware of the threats of NCDs and what behaviors can help us avoid these issues. Now is the time to walk the talk. Let’s celebrate Physical Activity Month by taking those first steps towards health!
I think tonight of all those Fijian men and women who witnessed the same scene from here but have since passed on – our parents, grandparents and previous generations. And I know they are with us in spirit. Because Albert Park - the green heart of our capital - has always occupied a special place in the hearts of every Fijian, whether they live in Suva or not.
I will not rest as Prime Minister until every Fijian – no matter where they are – has the same level of services. And that, of course, includes
access to proper training facilities at campuses like this.
