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.  
If you are living in Bau, Buretu, Nausori, Nuku, Tokatoka, Dravo, Namata, Nakelo in Tailevu; or in Vutia, Rewa, Burebasaga, Noco and Dreketi in Rewa or the east bank of Wainibuku Creek, or in Baulevu, Navuso up to Sawani Village in Naitasiri; I urge you to realise greater opportunity for yourselves as well by accessing the services offered by this new sub-regional TLTB Office.  
Growing an economy is an impressive feat, but we have to make sure that every Fijian feels the benefits of that growth and prosperity. We’re doing that through our record funding towards the care of those who are vulnerable in Fijian society, and through innovative initiatives that open doors of opportunity for our people, including new development opportunities for iTaukei landowners by funding infrastructure works in various sub-divisions. 
Nothing is impossible if you put your mind and spirit in your game. You are playing with the high expectations of your families and all Fijians.
As we celebrate this Fiji Day, we do so as proud daughters and sons of a united nation. We do so as common and equal citizens, in a genuine parliamentary democracy. And we do so from a position of strength and success unrivalled in the 48 years of our independent history; a nation that is finally fulfilling its destiny. A nation on a path to greatness. A nation that stands firmly on a foundation of security and stability, and a nation that is headed towards an even brighter tomorrow; one that holds promise for all of our people, and all those who come after us.  
Over the past decade, I’ve been all across the Northern Division opening new development projects at a rate that no government before has ever achieved. New water taps, new electrification projects, new roads, and new bridges, ports and jetties, We’ve expanded access to critical services, bringing better quality healthcare and expanding the reach of essential Government services as well, just last month we commissioned a massive new submarine cable project that will bring high speed telecommunications across your entire division, and I’ve opened new and upgraded school facilities, built to a higher cyclone-resilient standard, as we’re doing again today.
Over the years, IUCN has amassed numerous achievements, strengthening its commitment at the international as well as the regional level in the areas of protection of threatened animal and plant species, World Heritage conservation, the management of protected areas, and sustainable development, among others. Since year 2000, IUCN has continued to innovate with a focus on nature-based solutions, expanding the role of indigenous peoples in conservation, and launching new initiatives such as Save our Species and the Bonn Challenge. The joint effort between IUCN, the United Nations Environment Programme, and the World Wide Fund for Nature, almost three decades ago, had resulted in the release of the World Conservation Strategy that helped define the term “sustainable development”. The result of this determined effort and the call from IUCN members in 1988, was the production of national conservation strategies by numerous countries.
