THE government has a lot more to do for Fiji and it will not rest until it is done, says Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama.
Speaking at the opening of a telecentre at Labasa Muslim College yesterday, Commodore Bainimarama said his government does not make empty promises.
"We deliver. We are genuinely here to serve. Its been a special pleasure on this visit to meet so many of our young people who, as we all know, are the future of our great country and who carry our hopes on their shoulders for even better days ahead," he said.
"We constantly look to the future, not the past, and imagine how much greater Fiji could be if we can give our young people a better start, better health, better education, better opportunities to get good jobs, satisfying jobs and not just menial work.
"And, of course, better access to knowledge and the wider world, which is why we are all here today. Because that is what my government's telecentres are ultimately all about."
Commodore Bainimarama said the telecentres were an important program of his government.
"We have a vision of a smarter Fiji taking a leadership role in our region and being at the forefront of the effort to improve the lives of all Pacific peoples," he said.
"And that means a smarter population, Fijians who are better educated and better informed.
"Everything we do is designed to achieve that vision, whether it's training our young people to be trades people or farmers, giving people better access to scholarships or in this instance, giving ordinary Fijians better access to information."
