Fiji will rise again from the challenge of COVID-19, says Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.
While opening the new Rakiraki Municipal Market yesterday, he said Fiji would “rise better, smarter and more capable” of taking the nation into its brightest possible future.
“As fierce as these headwinds may be, we cannot allow ourselves to be blown off course from the nation that we’re working together to build, side by side,” said Mr Bainimarama.
“Our progress must press onwards.” He said support for the vulnerable must be strengthened.
“We must look within ourselves for innovation, and look inwards, within our economy, for new sources of prosperity.
“As the world prepares to welcome a new normal in the near future, Fiji is preparing to enter that new era on stronger footing.”
The PM said just as Rakiraki rose to its feet from Cyclone Winston, “so will all of Fiji rise again from the challenge of COVID-19”.
“And we will rise better, smarter and more capable of taking our nation into its brightest possible future.”
