Fiji’s 5-year and 20-year National Development Plan, sets the platform to continue to “transform Fiji” into a unified, prosperous, inclusive, and progressive modern nation.
This was emphasized by the Minister for Industry, Trade, Tourism, Lands and Mineral Resources – Faiyaz Koya, at the “74th Session of the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific”, in Bangkok, Thailand.
The Session will comprise of a senior officials segment, and a ministerial segment, during the 14th – 16th of May 2018.
Representatives from 53 member countries and nine associate members in the Asia and Pacific region – are invited to exchange views, knowledge, and experience on key trends, and pressing challenges that affect sustainable development in the region, as well as approve the program of the work of ESCAP.
Koya adds that Fiji will continue its advocacy on reducing the impact of climate change, by scaling up mitigation and adaptation efforts – which is the biggest contributor to inequality in this context – and also ‘access’ to climate finance.
