1,200 scouts from primary schools around the country are gathered in Labasa for their 13th Annual Jamboree.
Officially opening the Jamboree last night, Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says the four day camp will be an opportunity for the scouts who have come from as far as Lau and Yasawa to know and learn from each other.
Sayed-Khaiyum says the Fiji Scouts Association is one organization that government can partner with to ensure that we have a country that’s built by young people who know about the cubic duties and developing good relations.
He told the Scouts, government wants to use them and work with them to ensure they build a very strong country that will have young people committed to working together.
The Fiji Scouts Association has over 10, 000 members and they were allocated over $200,000 from the 2018/2019 national budget.
