Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama wants his delegation members to be accessible to Fijians in Australia.

At the end of a talanoa session in Sydney, he instructed them to make their mobile numbers available for people to call them when they needed help.

Mr Bainimarama is easily accessible to people in Fiji and overseas because they can call him directly on his mobile.

A raft of issues was asked during the talanoa session.

The delegation was asked whether the Government had funds to pay for salary increases in the civil service.

Permanent Secretary in the PM’s Office, Yogesh Karan, said civil service reforms had allowed for these increases.

Yaqona

The Fiji High Commissioner to Australia, Luke Daunivalu, said Mr Bainimarama had requested the Australian government to increase the limit of how much yaqona a person could take to Australia. He said Fiji wanted it to be raised from two kilos to five kilos.

Minister for Local Government Premila Kumar said a modern city feasibility study was required for Suva. She was responding to a suggestion for a railway along the coastlines to ease traffic congestion. She announced potential for electric buses.
