The Fiji Mission in Geneva celebrated Fiji Day this week with the international community and the Fijian diaspora.

While speaking at the event, Fiji’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations in Geneva, Nazhat Shameem Khan said that the members of the Fijian community attending the reception, were a reminder of how Fiji had taken its place among the nations of the world as a country which believed in multi-lateralism.

Shameem says that when Fiji became independent in 1970, the Fijian people had a vision for a country which was progressive, strong and resilient, which believed in unity and equality, which showed solid economic growth.

She says that Fiji believed in peacekeeping and peace building, and that Fiji as a small island developing country from the Pacific, should be represented on the Council, so that the world could hear stories from Fiji and its experiences of the path to a progressive and inclusive future based on the dignity of the Fijian people.
