So my fellow Fijians, we must continue to move away from the narrow-mindedness of the politicians who are now going around campaigning that we must go back to the old way of thinking and divide our people along ethnic, religious, and provincial lines, all to the detriment of you, your fellow Fijians and our country. This kind of thinking must never be brought back to any Government in Fiji.
We will not be deterred from pursuing new development, like the many projects opened all across Tailevu in recent years, many I’ve had the privilege to open personally. Instead, we will do what we must, pursuing new development that supports the well-being of ordinary people and that can be depended on, even when severe weather strikes.
We must persuade the world to limit the increase in global warming that is causing these events to no more than 1.5 degree Celsius above that of the pre-industrial age. We must succeed with the Talanoa Dialogue to raise the ambition of all nations to make deeper cuts in the carbon emissions that are causing this warming.
The Fijian Green Bond is mutually advantageous to both investors and the people who ultimately benefit – providing both financial returns and critical assistance for vulnerable people on the ground. And this is what I am most proud about - connecting this great Exchange – through this Green Bond - with ordinary Fijians on the other side of the world.
Friends, we must not be defeated by the scale of the challenge we face. We must make the hard decisions to enable the solutions that we know are out there to flourish more rapidly – the accelerating action that brings us together today.
What it does mean is this: through this corporatisation, the Fijian Government is now offering five per cent of the total shares in Energy Fiji Limited to EFL customers in the form of non-voting shares, completely for free.

If your home was totally destroyed or suffered severe structural damage you qualify for $7,000 in relief assistance. Those funds can go towards the reconstruction of your home and to cover the replacement costs for your lost possessions or household items, that includes television sets, furniture, housewares; anything of value in your home that was damaged by the rains and flooding.
I want to issue an appeal to every Fijian today to treat these incidents of flooding with the absolute seriousness they deserve. Do not attempt to cross swollen rivers and streams. Stay out of the floodwaters altogether. Don’t try to drive through water covering the road. Because as we’ve seen, your vehicle can easily be swept away with tragic consequences. And parents: Keep your children from playing in or around flooded streets, creeks and drains.
My Government has worked to put into place robust competition laws and policies, and we actively partner with strong institutions like the FCCC to ensure that these rules are enforced. And it’s not just about the new “C”, either; along with regulating competition, the Commission also safeguards consumers’ interests against unfair business practices.
It is an honour to welcome the New Zealand Defence Minister and your delegation to Fiji and we look forward to more high-level visits in the future, including your Prime Minister, when the demands of a new baby permit it. We’re very good with babies here in Fiji so it will be warmly welcomed too.
