Fiji right on track, says PM

"HERE we are at the beginning of 2014, the year that will see Fiji raise up a new parliamentary democracy, based for the first time on the principle of a common citizenry".

These were the words of the Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama while addressing about 130 guests attending inbound tour operator, Pacific Destinationz's 15th anniversary celebrations at Denarau, Nadi, on Wednesday.

"As I stand here and look at the year ahead, my message to you is clear — Fiji is on the right track," he said.

"Just as it is within the tourism industry, all development and progress within Fiji as a whole is interconnected. It's not about one policy, one initiative, or one sector.

"It's about how they relate to and feed off of each other to improve the lives of ordinary Fijians, by enhancing services, growing the economy and creating jobs."
