AG: Fiji Poised to Become a Modern Nation

FIJI is positioning itself to be a modern nation state that is undergoing enormous changes, says the Attorney General and Minister for Industry and Trade, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

Speaking at the 15th Fiji Muslim Sports Federation which comprises of Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and America (FANCA), Mr Sayed-Khaiyum told former Fiji residents that there were many changes taking place under the reforms currently implemented by government.

“In Fiji, under the (Josaia) Bainimarama Government, we are going through enormous transformation, enormous reformation and that is to correct many of the injustices of the past, not just to modernise our laws but to also modernise our infrastructure,” he said.

The Minister urged the former residents to participate and contribute to the changes that are taking place in the country.

“For those of you who have not visited Fiji for a while, many physical changes are taking place around you. Whether it is road upgrades, whether its airport upgrades or whether it’s in terms of providing various benefits, that will improve the day to day living of ordinary Fijians.”

He also highlighted that allowing dual and multiple-citizenships to former Fiji citizens, provides the importunity for them to contribute to their homeland.

After the launching, FANCA’s four-day tournament commenced today at Nadi’s Prince Charles Park where sports such volleyball, golf and tug of war will be played.

The first FANCA tournament first began in 1996.
