He also recognized that this is made possible by their hard work, success and prosperity in their adopted homes overseas.

Rabuka also encouraged the diaspora to stay connected with their loved ones back home, emphasizing the importance of maintaining strong ties with family and friends.

He also emphasized that the children and descendants of former Fiji citizens are now entitled to enter and reside in Fiji without a permit, with changes to the Immigration laws in 2023 by the Coalition government.

After the traditional formalities, a town-hall-style talanoa session was held where the Fijian community directly engaged with the Prime Minister.

The talanoa session centred on partnerships to further enhance the relationship between Fiji and its diaspora in Europe.
