It is a great honour for Fiji to receive the baton from Morocco of the presidency of COP. And assume the responsibility for implementing the Paris Agreement and prepare the way for more ambitious climate action.
Today, I am opening the newly constructed perimeter fence, a covered walkway, an upgraded staff restroom facility and a few other maintenance works to keep your school functioning safely and efficiently.
Today, I am here to do just that. Here in the Naidovi Settlement I will be distributing approval notices to lease for 32 families. These will grant 99-year leases to these families – giving them a sense of ownership and restoring their sense of dignity.
It is a pleasure to be here with you all today here to open these new and renovated classroom buildings for you students and teachers. So far, 2016 has been a great year for the students of Fiji, because my government has been able to provide new buildings and equipment to schools from Labasa to Naitaisiri and many places in between. I can’t imagine a better way to kick off the new year.
Government has spent $2.1 million to build this crossing through the Fiji Roads Authority. The crossing has been designed and constructed to last a long time and to withstand harsh weather and flood conditions. As a result, nine villages here in the Tikina – Nasau can enjoy reliable access to the main roads. 
My visit to Bukuya today is all about water—water that we drink, water that we channel to produce electricity, and water that we must manage. Government has spent nearly $530,000 on three projects involving water, and we are commissioning them today.
Mr President, Ladies and Gentlemen, my Government is steadily upgrading sporting facilities across the nation and part of that means building more swimming pools to enable competitive events to take place in our smaller towns. We, of course, are planning to build more swimming facilities throughout Fiji over time.
At the outset, I want to congratulate the Government of the Solomon Islands for assuming the Chairmanship of the MSG and your role in Chairing our Leader’s Summit.
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 fellow Fijians, our work isn’t only about making services available, it’s about making those services accessible and affordable. My Government has a network of support in place to support eligible Fijians with a fifty per cent subsidy on electricity bills.
