– Improve and promote economic conditions to facilitate trade and investment in a manner that ensures sustainable development in the interests of Fiji while still retaining cultural identity and sovereignty.

– Acknowledge that sound governance from our Parliament is essential to expand sustainable businesses and to create jobs, especially for young people.
