Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says Relax Resort Fiji is yet another vote of confidence in the tourism industry in Fiji.

He made the remark when he opened the resort in Nadi last night.

He acknowledged Johnny Lever – the Bollywood superstar who came all the way from Mumbai, India, to attend the opening.

He welcomed him to Fiji on behalf of the Government and the Fijian people.

He praised Bobby Khan for his investment because “it is an investment in the industry by a Fijian”.

“Someone with his roots and his heart in Fiji and who has displayed great determination to see his country prosper.

“Back in November 2012 on a sunny afternoon in Votualevu, I had the pleasure to open Bobby Khan’s first major investment in Fiji – his U Save supermarket. And almost three years later, I’m equally delighted to be here to officially open the latest – Resort Relax Fiji.

“It’s even more special because the investment has come from someone who left the country disillusioned in the wake of the 1987 coup. But who chose to return when he could see that the FijiFirst Government had righted an historical wrong and had put the country on a radically different path. Everyone with the same stake in their country of birth. Everyone a Fijian.

“Taking advantage of my Government’s multiple nationality policy, Bobby and his wife Azreena, decided to return after 22 years in New Zealand and join the growing number of Fijians coming home. To contribute to our economy and build the new Fiji.

“In doing so, they’ve created dozens of jobs – 60 staff in this resort alone and another 80 who were engaged in building it. And that’s on top of all the other jobs they’ve created in their other local businesses.”
