Prime Minister, Commodore Bainimarama says the future of the country is truly exciting and as a nation, collectively, we dream of a Fiji that is strengthened by the unity of all her citizens: one people, one nation.

As the country celebrates its 42nd Independece anniversary today, Bainimarama in his national address to all Fijians said the special day also gives us a wonderful opportunity to reflect on our past, our present and our future.

"At Independence 42 years ago today, we dedicated ourselves to building a strong nation," he said.

"Fiji Day is an important day on the calendar for all Fijians and it is the day we set aside to reflect on our country, what it means to us and the pride we take in its achievements."

"Today is a day for celebration, to join hands and commemorate the things that bind us together."

"Despite challenges, we have never abandoned our dream to finally achieve our goals. And my fellow Fijians, think about how far we have already come."

"We believe in a Fiji that respects and cherishes all the strands of its many cultures, traditions and histories."

"We argue that a common and equal citizenry is the only foundation upon which a modern, democratic Fiji can rest."

"And we commit ourselves to leaving behind a better Fiji for our children."

"So as we celebrate today, I ask that we pause for a moment to reflect on what the country that we all call home means to us, to our friends, and to our families, and what each of us can do to help build a better Fiji for all."

"I wish you a happy and safe Fiji Independence Day," he concluded.

Nation-wide celebrations are currently underway across different venues in the country.
