PM commends Fijian community in Aust

Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka has commended the Fijian community in Australia for maintaining positive relations with their host country.

Speaking to about 200 Fijians during a diaspora gathering in Perth last night, Rabuka said through the “Vuvale Partnership”, Fiji’s bilateral relations with Australia have continued to advance to new heights.

Thank you for embodying the spirit of “Vuvale” and for being good Fijians here in Australia,” he said.

“Thank you for being good Fijians abroad and for assisting your families and Fiji’s economy through your individual remittance contributions.”

“Our recovery efforts are progressing well, things are getting better at home, and we thank you for contributing positively towards the economy.”

Rabuka at the same time, urged the Fijian community to be law-abiding citizens and residents of their host country.

“Observe and respect the law of the land, respect the traditional owners of the land you are living on because that is what we expect when visitors visit our land.”

He also shared insights into Fiji’s current political and economic landscape and encouraged the Fijian community to actively contribute to the growth and prosperity of both nations by advancing collaboration in various fields, such as trade, education, and cultural exchange, to name just a few.

In this regard, he reiterated that Fiji was open for business and encouraged the diaspora members to explore investment opportunities back home.

The Prime Minister further assured the Fijian community that the Coalition Government is committed to serving the people of Fiji and developing the nation.
