The Government is adamant on making life better for all Fijians.

And Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama said this has been a constant pattern in the plan that Government has put in place.

Mr Bainimarama was at the Vunarewa Rural Electrification project in Nadi yesterday.

“When we invest in development like this electrification project, we bring Fiji and the Fijian people close to realising our tremendous potential as a nation,” he said.

“Of course, we have the big projects – the roads, bridges, jetties, and even the new airport here in Nadi – but it’s these small projects as well that make a real difference in the lives of our people. And every step we take, no matter how small, is part of our great journey forward as a nation.

“This project, and all of the developments we’ve brought to Fiji, is part of our simple strategy for success – a strategy we’ve stuck with over the past decade.

“When we invest in infrastructure and expand access to services, such as electric power, we give ordinary Fijians the chance to be everything they are capable of being, as citizens, students, parents and providers.

“Combined with our sound financial management, we’ve created an engine of progress that has carried our economy to eight straight years of growth, with nothing but positive projections in the years ahead.”

The Prime Minister said that his government was committed to helping Fiji and her citizens to be enabled.

“My Government knows what works when it comes to managing and growing an economy. And as we’ve welcomed economic prosperity, we’ve done our duty – as mandated by the Fijian Constitution – by spreading the benefits of our success to every corner of the country, including here in Vunarewa.”

The Prime Minister then held a ‘talanoa’ session with members of the community who turned up.
