Speeches

8/5/2017
I’m delighted to be here this evening, not only because we have such a wonderful performance lined up, but because we are all here to support such a great cause – to raise funds for the redevelopment of the Rewa Branch of the Shree Sanatan Dharam Pratinidhi Sabha.
8/4/2017
We need everyone working in our Pine Industry to remain committed over the long-term to protect our forests from disasters, such as fires, and replant our forests so that our sons and daughters, and our grandchildren, can inherit the same bounty that our forests provide us with today.
8/4/2017
Today, I have the pleasure of distributing 1.5 Million Dollars in lease security bonus payments to our landowners – matching the record setting payment that was distributed last year. It’s hard to believe that our first lease bonus payment in 2013 stood at 350,000 Dollars, and today – only five years later – this payment stands at more than four times that amount, as we celebrate another big win for Fiji Pine, our landowners and the entire Fijian economy.
8/2/2017
It’s true, your geography presents serious challenges to development. But that is not your burden to bear. It is the duty of my Government to make special efforts to meet those challenges, and we are doing just that. By being innovative and thinking creatively we are extending the prosperity we are achieving for Fiji directly to your communities.
8/1/2017
I’m delighted to be here as we mark the start of our new financial year and bring into effect an unprecedented measure to protect our natural environment from pollution – a new ten cents levy on plastic bags.
7/31/2017
I’m delighted to be here in Nasinu –the heart of our largest centre of population and one of the fastest growing areas in all of Fiji – as we break ground for the construction of the new Laqere Market.
7/28/2017
My Government has brought eight straight years of economic growth to Fiji, and that has brought with it enormous change. As that prosperity spreads across our islands, ordinary Fijians are becoming more engaged with our economy, and they need a development bank that is ready to support them as they step up their role in our national development.
7/20/2017
Along with building our resilience to climate change, the expansion of Fiji’s trade with the rest of the world is among my government’s top priorities. So I’m delighted to be spearheading the first dedicated trade and investment mission to one of the most dynamic economies in our region – the state of Queensland.
7/11/2017
I want to congratulate the organisers at UNDP Pacific and urge as many Fijians as possible to come to the Fiji Museum to see it. Because it transforms the 17 SDGs from words on a page – a bold statement of principles – into compelling images to which we can all relate. We can all appreciate.
7/10/2017
Madam Speaker, above all this budget is fair. It balances the needs of everyone. It empowers more Fijians than ever before. And it builds on the achievements of previous years, setting us on a path for renewed growth in 2018 and beyond.
