#Fijians have proved that we are worthy and capable of facing adversity squarely, overcoming it, and emerging as a more just and more united nation.
These were the sentiments made by the Minister for Local Government, Housing and Community Development Hon. Premila Kumar while officiating the #Fiji Day celebrations in Sigatoka.

“As Fijians, we have the right to be proud of what we have accomplished in 50 years.
Together, across Fiji, we have set a pace of national development unmatched in the Pacific, developing our towns, cities, and our rural and maritime areas, extending life-changing services across our islands.”
Minister Kumar also commended Fijians for being brave during this pandemic and called on cooperation in moving the country forward.
