Fiji will be hosting the Asia Pacific Parliamentary Forum on Global Health (APPFGH) in 2019.

Speaker of Parliament Dr Jiko Lu­veni made the announcement at the end of the APPFGH that was held in Manila, Philippines last week.

Dr Luveni thanked the member countries of the APPFGH for sup­porting Fiji’s bid to host the APP­FGH 2019.

“We have hosted many internation­al conferences in the past. Indeed, in the first week of May 2019, Fiji will host the Annual Board of Directors Meeting of the Asian Development Bank,” Dr Luveni said.

Dr Luveni said based on the fig­ures that attended the meeting in Manila, earlier this year, it was ex­pected that between 3500 to 4000 peo­ple would be coming to Fiji for the one-week meeting.

“In 2017 the Fiji Parliament hosted the Asia Pacific Parliamentary Fo­rum for about 270 participants.

“We will blend the sights and sounds of Fiji and the Pacific into the conference programme, so that it will be an experience that will live long in your memories after your visit,” Dr Luveni said.

The Fijian Parliament will be the focal point of the conference and the Speaker assured the members that the Fiji Conference will be a great success and would expose the members to the world renowned Fi­jian hospitality.
