THE American government has been involved in the development of education in Fiji for years.

US ambassador Frankie Reed said many Fiji students had studied in her country through exchange programs facilitated by the US government.

"The American embassy here in Fiji through the US government has also been active in supporting rural schools in terms of donating them with educational equipment to make study for the local children more enjoyable and meaningful," said Ms Reed.

"Education is a huge component of our support to countries and Fiji is one of them.

"We even have our Peace Corps volunteers who have taught in various schools around the country since the program started in the 1960s and we are proud to be contributing to the success of local students, academic wise, through the years."

Ms Reed said the roadshow at Savusavu, the first one for Fiji, was organised to improve relations between the American people and locals, and furthering an understanding of the American embassy and its functions in Fiji.
