Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka says we must continue to have hope and trust each other that 2023 will be a year of revival, awakening and renewed spirit.
In his New Year’s message, Rabuka said we, as a nation, must stay positive despite the challenges that we are going to face this year.
“The uncertainty we are experiencing in the geopolitical environment cannot be swept under the carpet.”
“At the home front, we have our own socio-economic challenges and deep-rooted mistrust among our different communities.”
“Some of these events are beyond our control and there continues to be uncertainty.”
“We must all commit ourselves in working together to address these enormous challenges.”
“Together, we can find solutions if we are willing to trust and have faith in each other.”
“Self-sacrifice must be made so we can re-discover the spirit of togetherness as a family, community and as a nation.”
“I am positive and absolutely confident that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, God’s grace and our collective demeanor, we will come back stronger together than ever before,” he added.
