SUVA, Fiji (Fiji Times, Nov. , 2016) – Fiji is currently undergoing a wave of development never before seen in our history.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama made the comment during the swearing in ceremony for peace corps volunteers group 93 at the University of the South Pacific this afternoon.

"For many years, we suffered from divisive politics that held our nation back - but over the past decade, Fiji has emerged as a dynamic island economy and the hub of development in the South Pacific," Mr Bainimarama said.

"And my Government is working everyday to make sure the benefits of that progress extend to every Fijian, irrespective of where they are in Fiji, whether that be in our cities, towns, or rural and maritime areas.

"So that we can empower every Fijian to seize the opportunities that we are creating for our people."
