The Fiji of coups and chaos is no more.
While delivering his maiden speech in parliament this morning, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says today Fiji is about stability, equality and endurance which will mostly benefit generations to come.
Bainimarama challenged MPs in the chamber to recognize that false fear mongering about land laws tears countries apart, limits economic potential and pulls the people down.
He says no one can take this country forward the way they do.
“No one is more experienced with carrying weight of the tremendous responsibility than our government and I wish to assure the Fijian people that I will never rest in my efforts to serve our nation, to move Fiji forward and to lead a government that sets an example for integrity, decency, transparency and respect for all Fijians.”
Bainimarama says he is proud to lead this country again and as it shows that Fijians have put their trust in him.
“As the years have passed, in face since that time 4 years ago, my pride has only intensified, my commitment has only strengthened, my sense of duty has only grown more profound as I remain ready & committed as ever to continuing the work of this house.”
He says they current services provided by government are expected to expand.
“We shall continue to expand access to critical services such as our network of road, water, electricity and telecommunications including the new free WiFi hot spots we’ve launched across the country. And we will continue to make government services available and simpler for Fijians to use and understand. We shall continue to deliver new and better infrastructure.”
The Prime Minister also took time out to welcome women represented in parliament and also his wife Mary who he says has been his rock since he came to government.
