Mr President, This is a special moment for Fiji as you assume the Presidency of the 71st session of the General Assembly – the first Fijian and the first Pacific Islander to attain this high office at the UN.

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.
Tonight, that victory will be immortalised with the launch of a commemorative banknote and coin that honour our players, coaches and staff and give their victory the ever-lasting place in our history it deserves.
A very good afternoon to you all and indeed I am delighted to join you this afternoon to officiate the opening of the Lales Suprite Supermarket in Lautoka, which is yet another milestone in its vision for Fiji.
That is the protection of our children. I know that we are now in school holidays and I really appreciate the good heart to have an intervention on the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (PCAN) during this SUIS Camp amongst approximately 400 children.
The contribution of young voices in these narratives is important. My Ministry believes that young people need to be actively involved in strategies that enable them to deal with their issues effectively.
Fiji is giving enthusiastic support to the Vulnerable 20’s Global Preparedness Partnership, given our recent experience dealing with a severe natural disaster in the form of Tropical Cyclone Winston.
As we commemorate the International Women’s Day today, the Ministry of Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation would like to remember all the Fijian women and children and especially those have been affected by the cyclone Winston.
Fiji is committed to the discussions and we are willing to work with you all in our efforts to yield positive outcomes. We are here with our different standpoints regarding how we envision the outcomes from this week. However, I urge that our mutual understandings and cooperation over the years transcend to other matters that require our unison so that key fish species and fisheries can enjoy the long-term sustainability that is very much necessary for us.
It is indeed an excellent opportunity for me to be here with you today to celebrate the 2015 International Day of Forests.
