The draft framework aims at cultivating trust and respect amongst communities, as well as fostering stronger ties between the government and its citizens.

The framework envisions Fiji as a socially cohesive nation where individuals from all backgrounds – regardless of ethnicity, caste, creed, culture, tradition, language, or religion – can coexist harmoniously in an integrated and inclusive manner.
