We have stuck to our promise of a swift recovery from the devastating impacts of COVID-19, and we are slowly seeing that come to pass.

This sentiment was echoed by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama yesterday during a talanoa session at the Namosi Provincial Council meeting in Veivatuloa Village.

Mr. Bainimarama said: “Together we kept to our plan.”

“As leaders, you helped us convey COVID-safe practices to your people and you raised awareness that helped us vaccinate nearly every adult in Fiji to protect them from death and severe disease.

He said the Government had been able to open borders, open businesses, restore freedom taken away by COVID-19 and make Fiji strong and safe again.

“Our economy is back on the move guided by the same steady hands that delivered nine straight years of economic growth – the longest streak in history,” he said.

“Our markets are humming, our people’s jobs and livelihoods are coming back, consumption is up, businesses are thriving, and this is just the beginning.

“Our recovery will keep creating jobs, generating income, driving up investment, and allowing for new development that builds on everything we have achieved together.”

He added that the economy was projected to achieve double-digit growth by this year.

“It could be the biggest spike in the economic growth ever recorded in Fijian history – and it could not come soon enough.

“We face extraordinary challenges ahead; climate change will continue to land stronger cyclones at our shores. We must give our full focus to adapting now, not later.”
