Fiji will take the main stage this week on the global front when it co-hosts the United Nations Oceans Conference in New York with Sweden.
A first for Fiji and the UN as delegates will witness a traditional ceremony of welcome by the Fiji Military Forces.
At a briefing today to the Prime Minister, Fiji’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Luke Daunivalu said that New York and the UN are looking forward to this week’s meeting.
Aside from formal engagements, this week’s conference will also include 160 side events.
While here, Bainimarama will hold talks with senior government officials, UN officials and senior officials from the private sector.
“Fiji and I expect us to give our best for this week in the Oceans Conference. So let’s give it the best we can so we can keep Fiji on a high platform that we have in the last couple of years.”
The Conference which starts tomorrow aims to be the game changer that will reverse the decline in the health of our ocean for people, planet and prosperity.
