Talking points for the meeting between HE The President of Fiji and teh Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National Peoples Congress of The Peoples Republic of China
On behalf of the Republic of Fiji, I commend you on the work of the Open Ended Working Group on Nuclear Disarmament and on the important steps planned to eradicate the risks of nuclear devastation on humanity.

Mr Chairman, that is now our number one national priority – to strengthen our economy, the industry, and protect the 200,000 Fijians who depend on sugar for their livelihoods. While at the same time, embracing the reforms that we must embrace to make the Fijian sugar cane industry more efficient and guarantee a viable future. 
I’m delighted to be here in Naitasiri again this morning for a very happy event for the people of Kalabu – the handing over of a cheque for $1.6 million to a total of 74 members of the Mataqali.
When I hand over these certificates to those of you among the 226 people in Ba who’ve qualified, it will take the total number of Fijians who’ve been assisted under this scheme to 2,877. But because their families and those around them also benefit, we estimate that the lives of more than 14,000 Fijians have been also improved. And that is a wonderful thing for a great many people.
It’s only eight days since I was here in Rakiraki to open your new bridge – a bridge to the future, I called it, for the people of Rakiraki and the North. And I’m delighted to be back with you this morning for the local launch of another bridge to the future – our grants to assist our small and micro business people to prosper and grow.
"Over the next four days, you will not only have the privilege to play on one of the most spectacular oceanfront courses in the world, breathing in some of the cleanest air in the world. But you will also be able to enjoy our unique Fijian hospitality – the warmth and openness of the Fijian people that has made Fiji even more celebrated as a destination than its spectacular scenery."
This is the plan for the next 3 years therefore I invite all technical and funding partners to support Fiji’s commitment to combat AMR.
Your contributions will add value to the progress and effective implementation of this plan.
People who had nothing had retained the ability to be welcoming. To be cheerful even in the most dire of circumstances. And it has been one of the most inspirational periods of my life. To know that for all its destructive force, Winston did not destroy the spirit of the Fijian people. In fact, it has made them stronger.
