May I remind you once again of the purpose of our organisation which is to contribute to the development of young people, our efforts must aim to ensure that the young people we interact with are inspired to learn, to share their talents and abilities with those who are less fortunate in their communities. We must instill in these young people the passion to share their experiences positively with other young people and spread the Scout spirit and message of ‘peace’ and strive to be responsible citizens.  
As a parent, when your child suffers from a serious illness, that can bring crushing and overwhelming stress. The only thing that matters to a mother or father faced with that situation is whether or not their child can receive the care they need to get better. In those moments, you’re not thinking about the money. You’re not thinking about the sacrifices that must be made. You will do anything and everything to make sure your child gets better. As both a parent and a grandparent, I’ve been there. I know exactly how that feels.  
Education is an essential means of empowering women with the knowledge, skills and self-confidence necessary to fully participate in the development process. Sustainable development is only possible when women and men enjoy equal opportunities to reach their potential.
For Fijians, the life and death of Jesus carry lessons that carry profound meaning for each of us. Jesus’s life was a life dedicated to the service of all people, from all walks of life. His love touched the hearts of women, men, children, youths and elders from all different faiths, different socio-economic backgrounds, and different cultures. 
To each and every one of our 28 players and 6 officials, I would like to, on behalf of our Rugby passionate and loving Nation, commend and congratulate you on being selected into our National Under 20 Team this year – well done!
The Fijian Government strongly believes that a robust and resilient economy is built through collaboration between all players in the economy. I wish to reiterate that the private sector is the engine for economic growth, whilst the Fijian Government continues to provide an enabling and conducive environment, for businesses to flourish.  
As officers of the law, you are the shield that guards our people from those grave dangers to their safety and security. You can’t fulfil that duty while sitting behind a desk or behind the wheel of a lorry. You need to be in the communities you are tasked to protect.
I know and understand that being selected to represent our beloved nation in any international sporting competition has always been hard and for this, it would be remiss of me if I do not commend, congratulate and thank you for your personal determination, commitment and perseverance over the past couple of months and years for those of you who have been involved with the sport for sometime now.
That recognition of the value of human capital has already been reflected in my Government’s allocation of resources to train and upskill existing officers, in addition to a nearly 25-million-dollar initiative announced in last year’s Annual Budget to regularise over 600 established positions. Our people-first approach to bolstering the Force has been ongoing for years now, and it’s starting to yield results –– over the last three years, crime has decreased by 11 per cent, with a 15 per cent decrease in crimes against women.
As of today, we’re doing away with some of the stress faced by new families, making the days and weeks following the birth of a child less of a hassle by bringing the birth registration process online for the very first time. We’re saving new families valuable time –– time that can be spent doing just about everything else required to care for and nurture a new baby.
