Fiji’s mission in New York recently hosted lunch for 60 Ambassadors to celebrate Fiji’s 46 years of Independence.

President of the United Nations General Assembly and former Fiji Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Peter Thomson also attended the Fiji Day celebrations with friends of Fiji working in the UN Secretariat, with a total participation of around 100 guests.

In welcoming the guests, Fiji’s acting Head of Mission and Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations Ambassador Luke Daunivalu stated that they were honoured to have many Ambassadors at the UN attend and celebrate Fiji Day with the Fijian staff.

Ambassador Thomson, who has also hosted such Fiji Day lunches for the Diplomatic community for the past six years, shared how much goodwill has been garnered through these events.

The occasion marked the celebration of some of Fiji’s achievements during the year, which included Ambassador Thomson’s election as PGA.

It was an opportunity to highlight the resilience of the Fijian people in the face of adversity, particularly the ongoing rehabilitation efforts from Tropical Cyclone Winston that struck the nation earlier this year.

The staff of the Fiji Mission will also be organising an event specifically for the Fijian community living in New York today.

It will be an opportunity to celebrate Fiji Day with our nationals as well as to facilitate electronic voter registration for Fiji’s Elections Office.
