We’ve done a lot of growing, both as a nation and as a people, under my Government’s leadership. We’ve grown the economy for nine straight years, we’ve grown the number of jobs, bringing unemployment down to a 20-year low, and we’ve massively grown our networks of infrastructure, delivering a decade of new development for Fijians everywhere.

My last visit took place in 2016, after Ovalau fell victim to the widespread destruction of Tropical Cyclone Winston. While it’s always good to be back in Levuka, this visit has been particularly encouraging. In the wake of the storm’s devastation, it was unimaginable to think that we’d be here today, just two years later––welcoming new investments, opening new developments, and equipping Fijians with the tools to grow their businesses. But all of this is proof of my Government’s commitment to ensuring that each and every Fijian enjoys the benefits of our nation’s growing economy, regardless of who they are or where in Fiji they call home.

The vision of the Fijian Government, is to establish and develop a talented and competitive workforce. To equip young people with the know-how to succeed in the modern marketplace, with the confidence that they can achieve greatness. Therefore, we will need to harness those abilities, along with their inherent creativity, for the greater benefit of Fiji and the Fijian people.

It is our collective duty to ensure that our young people are empowered and guided through all available avenues and media to become good citizens and value what is important in life.

More still needs to be done and I call on development partners, investors, donors and the private sector to step in, and to step up support to enable and capacitate our Pacific island communities to respond to the urgent call to accelerate climate action.

This initiative is special because it is an industry that is on the frontline of the impacts of climate and ocean change. Ocean acidification and a warming ocean threaten the ability of the pearl oyster shells to form in their natural environment.
7/27/2018
Today, I can happily say I have never been more confident that there is momentum here in the Pacific to confront the climate threat, and that we have accelerated it over the last two days. The energy and drive that I felt at this conference was even greater than a year ago. It was fuelled by a year in which we have worked hard on both practical and political grounds.
7/27/2018
It is common knowledge that here and abroad, industries grow rapidly, therefore it is crucial for us all to enhance competitiveness and improve productivity. Therefore promoting decent and productive work and encouraging a healthy lifestyle are key elements to advance competitiveness and productivity in the workplace.

The MSBG is a unique initiative that has kept in mind the need to ensure that opportunity for you to get further funding from a commercial bank to growth your business.

During the Climate Action Pacific Partnership (CAPP) Conference taking place in Suva, Arnold Schwarzenegger, actor and former governor of California, used a video address to applaud Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama’s climate leadership and congratulate him for the successful hosting of the critical gathering of the region’s leaders. The CAPP Conference saw the launch of the Pacific Talanoa Dialogue, the first such meeting taking place as part of a global series of dialogues directed to raise ambition in implementing the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
