Update: 12:05PM ATTORNEY-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum is expected to deliver the keynote address at this year's CPA Congress in place of Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama.

In a statement last week, the CPA Australia Fiji Branch Council said the Prime Minister was unable to attend the congress because he was required to travel overseas.

"Prime Minister Bainimarama said that he was looking forward to attending this year's congress, as usual, and that he is sad to miss it, however his trip overseas is unavoidable. He wished the delegates a successful and enjoyable congress," the council said.

"CPAA Fiji branch is most grateful that the Attorney General has agreed to deliver the keynote address in place of the Prime Minister."
