National Federation Party leader, Professor Biman Prasad says Fiji can have a quality of life to rival New Zealand’s.
Prasad has outlined his vision in a speech to Rotarians in Suva saying it is within Fiji’s grasp to do better than New Zealand by 2030.
He says by 2030 it will be a free nation, absolutely confident in its diversity, celebrating it and reaping the benefits of growth.
Prasad says the country’s hospitals, schools and incomes will be on par with New Zealand.
But he told his business audience that this will not happen in an atmosphere of intimidation and governance that stifles voices and weakens the rule of law.
Prasad says the NFP wants; a strong economy, world class health care, fairness in the legal system, a high skilled military, an I-Taukei community that is confident and secure, gender equality, a pristine environment and a media that protects the country’s freedoms.
