Vision 2030

Nasik Swami
Friday, June 13, 2014

FIJI needs a clear direction, sense of urgency, good governance and sufficient human resource base to rebuild itself for the future.

This was remarked by NFP leader and economist Biman Prasad at a Rotary Club meeting at Suva's Grand Pacific Hotel yesterday.

In his speech, titled Vision 2030, Mr Prasad said Fiji needed honest leaders with the vision of sustaining this country for future generations.

"In my journey from Dreketi to Labasa to Suva, to the wider world and back to Fiji, I have followed these guidelines. I believe they are equally relevant in helping us achieve my vision for our country," Mr Prasad said.

"As I look around the room and reflect on our future, I suspect that in 2030, most of you will probably be somewhere else looking at Fiji from distant rocking chairs."

He said in 2020, Fiji would be celebrating its 50th anniversary as an independent country.

"I will work day and night, through the NFP, to make sure that we have real achievements to celebrate in the 50th year of our existence as a free nation. Given our many wasted years, we have a lot of catching up to do."
