PM: Decolonisation involves broader collections

Shayal Devi
Friday, May 23, 2014

THE process of decolonisation involves a much broader collection of issues than those specifically related to self-determination, says Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama.

"It involves careful consideration of what I would call 'nation-building issues'. These are issues like education, social structures, infrastructure, institutions, political legacies and natural resources to name just a few.

"All these areas must be discussed as part of any decision on self-determination so that a country is equipped not just to take control of its political destiny but its future development across a broad front."

This is the fourth time that Fiji has hosted this seminar over the course of the past 16 years.

He was speaking at the opening of the Pacific Regional Seminar on the UN Special Committee on Decolonisation at the Sofitel Resort on Denarau.
