ONE Fiji party hopes to be able to eradicate poverty and hunger in Fiji by 2020.

Party leader Vilimone Vosarogo gave this response when asked what was one thing the party could do that no other party had a solution to. In an address to about 200 people at Waikete Village in Tailevu on Tuesday night, Mr Vosarogo said: "We can eradicate extreme poverty and hunger by 2020.

"According to the MDG Report 1990-2009, this can only be achieved by reversing the rural to urban drift.

"This problem contributes to the growing squatter population which has implications for urban resource management and also posing further threats to the environment.

"We made sure that we are known to be the only party that is accurately addressing unemployment with the most realistic solution that Fiji really cannot contain the influx of graduates into the workforce supply component, so we emphasised that the most viable solution is to encourage accreditation of our courses to ensure our graduates have the same chance to apply for a job overseas as any other graduate from a profiled overseas university," Mr Vosarogo said.
