THE Hibiscus flower is in full bloom and attracting all elements of nature that lives.

This was highlighted by the Suva Retailers Association president Himmat Lodhia when describing the Vodafone Hibiscus Festival during the official opening in Suva yesterday.

Mr Lodhia said the Hibiscus had now become the envy of the nation and was now known around the country as the mother of all festivals.

"You have already heard that this is one festival that brings people of all races together and generates fresh economy," Mr Lodhia said.

"The theme climate change affects human lives is important and we need to play our part in addressing the issue.

"This year has a meaningful and timely theme on climate change and I am sure each one will take away important lessons from the festival whilst enjoying the festivities.

"I encourage all of you to do your part and if you all do your part, we can ensure that we will have a secure future.

"Let us all work together to achieve the smiles for ourselves, our children, our families, our friends and Fiji."
