MINISTER for Women Dr Jiko Luveni said she was honoured to serve women.

Marking International Women's Day last week, Dr Luveni said women of Fiji played a vital part in the country's development.

"I can say that there are now more than 1500 women's groups in this country and that is very encouraging to know because these are women who have chosen to come together to work for a better future for themselves and for their families," she said.

"I am working with half of Fiji's population and that is a challenge in itself but it has been a fulfilling one and something that I would be very privileged to do again if given the opportunity."

She said women should aspire to achieve positive change. The theme of this year's celebration was inspiring change.
