The Fiji of coups and chaos is no more, said Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama while delivering his speech in Parliament yesterday.

Mr Bainimarama said children and grandchildren of Fiji would inherit a Fiji of stability, equality, healthy employee and employer relationships, business growth and investment, adherence to high international standard practices and vigilant and global leadership.

He assured the Fijian people that he would never rest in his efforts to serve our nation, to move Fiji forward and to lead a Government that set an example for integrity, decency, transparency and respect for all Fijians.

He said: “I am here to serve you. As Prime Minister, I am here to listen to you and take your concerns seriously, I am here to bring the change our nation needs to consult the challenges on the horizon.

“I am here to build a better Fijian for all Fijians wherever they maybe in the country.”

Mr Bainimarama said the re-election of the FijiFirst government was for Fiji and that their leadership would remain principled, transparent and accountable in every decision and action to maintain a steady, consistent and responsible financial management of Fiji’s economy.

Mr Bainimarama also highlighted that during his leadership as Prime Minister, no iTaukei land had been lost and the communal ownership of the iTaukei land was protected.

He challenged the chamber to recognise that false fearmongering tore the country apart, limited the economic potential of the country and pulled us down.

“Our record in that regard will remain untarnished in the years to come as we found new ways to not only protect and preserve iTaukei land, but continue to help landowners tap into its full economic potential with the full offering of development assistance from planning to constructions,” he said.

“We should continue to make strategic investments in our economy, investments that are specifically designed to make life easier, better and more affordable for all families.”

Mr Bainimarama also highlighted that next month he would hand over the presidency of the UN Climate Change Negotiation to Poland at COP24.

“I will do so with a great deal of pride in what we together have accomplished during the Fijian presidency of COP23.”

He said Fiji continued to rise to a new height and this new remarkable Fiji would benefit all Fijians and those to come.

“We must never forget that when we all share a country, we share more than a spot of land on the earth, we share a destiny and the love for our nation and each other,” Mr Bainimarama said.

“We are together in the struggle to build a nation that is more just, more caring and more prosperous every day.”

Mr Bainimarama acknowledged President Major General (Ret’d) Jioji Konrote for his challenge towards all of the members of Parliament to work together irrespective of party politics to serve the best interests of all Fijians.

He congratulated the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians and head coach John McKee for their win over France last weekend and the Fiji Airways Fijiana 15s team defending its Oceania Women’s title.

He also congratulated Dr Jiko Luveni for her re-election as Parliament Speaker.
