The number of doctors and nurses in Fiji has doubled under my Government, but we aren’t stopping there. We are actively recruiting more doctors, providing our community health workers with a 200-dollar monthly allowance, and we have increased the salaries of our existing essential healthcare workers by significant margins.
It was about making Rotuma feel more connected to the rest of Fiji than at any point in our nation’s history. And it was about bringing a new tide of economic activity that will allow you to take part in the ongoing economic prosperity that we are experiencing all throughout Fiji.
Today we farewell their Royal Highnesses at the end of their visit to Fiji and ask Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex to unveil a statue - at our gateway to the world - to commemorate one of our greatest military heroes. Sergeant Talaiasi Labalaba was born not far from here in the village of Vatutu, Nawaka, Nadi in 1942. 
Your Royal Highnesses, we greet you not only as honoured guests in our country, but in a very real sense, as members of the extended Fijian family. For while this may be your first visit to Fiji, the Royal Family has had the closest of ties with Fiji stretching back over six generations, and are a valued part of our nation’s history.
We share Commonwealth values and common goals – a love of rugby and a sense of humour! Our ties run deep. Your soldiers fought with the British Armed Forces during the First and Second World Wars and continue to serve alongside our soldiers to this day, with more than 1,250 Fijians currently serving.
• For small islands, the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessment report projects a medium risk of “loss of livelihoods, coastal settlements, infrastructure, ecosystem services and economic stability,” in the near term (2030 - 2040), and a very high risk in the long term (2080 - 2100).  
The charity is inspired by the memory of a little girl, Tae Kami, who called both Fiji and Tonga her home and tragically lost her battle with cancer at the young age of 15. A beautiful and creative mind, Tae had written a song called “Walk on Walk Strong”, with touching lyrics that spoke of her difficult journey eased by her faith in God. Always of the giving spirit, her dying wish was to set up an organisation to help little boys and girls like her in the Pacific in their own fights against childhood cancer.
Our economy is on the cusp of ten straight years of economic growth. Our schools are filled with record numbers of Fijian students, thanks to our free primary and secondary education initiative, free textbooks and subsidised transportation to school, along with the historic funding we’ve put towards tertiary loans and scholarships. And we have given an all-time high, one-billion-dollar allocation towards the education of our people in our latest national budget.  
So far, our journey forward has already led us to record flows of tourism, trade and investment between our countries. Fiji remains a favoured destination for Aussie tourists, with tourism earnings from the Australian market achieving a historic high last year of nearly one billion Fijian dollars. Our two-way trade is steadily on the rise, as the Fijian economy has soared to a record nine straight years of economic growth, and confidence in Fiji is sky-high, as seen in the nearly half a billion dollars’ worth of Australian investment into our country last year.
World Tourism Day is celebrated all over the world on 27 September each year. The day aims to create awareness on the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political and economic values.
