Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has commended the Victorian Multicultural Sports Association, a young organization for its love of sport and the recognition of its tremendous potential, adding it made VMSA a natural partner for Fiji and the Fijian people.
The PM made the comments at the event last night which was held at Crown Towers in Melbourne, Australia.
The PM thanked the VMSA in advance for hosting the under-19 national football team in July as they prepare for the World Cup in Tahiti, and for the funds the organisation helped raise to assist flood victims back in Fiji.
While addressing more than 200 guests, mostly former Fijians now residing in Australia, the PM updated them on the latest developments happening in Fiji.
These included updates on the success of the growing Fijian economy and the leading role Fiji has taken on the global stage on the issues that matter most to our people for a secure future.
He said over the past decade, the Fijian Government had spent more than $7.4 billion on roads, bridges, schools and other infrastructure.
