Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has urged members of the Fijian community in Sydney to consider investing in Fiji and be part of an increasingly dynamic and diversifying Fijian economy.

While addressing the Fijian diaspora at Sydney’s Holiday Inn, Bainimarama says that it means a great deal to him that they invest in the success of our country – a country that will always be home for them.

He says that cities are modernizing, services are becoming more available and reliable, networks of infrastructure and consumer choices are expanding, businesses are growing and higher paying jobs are being made available.

He also says that young Fijians are stepping into an economy where their most ambitious dreams can become a reality and they are making themselves heard in a democracy where their rights cannot be infringed and their voices cannot be silenced.

The Prime Minister added that for years, he has  urged the Fijian diaspora to take up their role in the great story of Fijian progress to build industries through the ingenuity of the Fijian people and to capitalise on the growth of increasingly dynamic and diversifying economy.
