Republic of Fiji

officially the Republic of Fiji[9] (Fijian: Matanitu Tugalala o Viti;[10] Hindi: फ़िजी गणराज्य),[11] is an island country in Melanesia in the South Pacific Ocean about 1,100 nautical miles (2,000 km; 1,300 mi) northeast of New Zealand's North Island. Its closest neighbours are Vanuatu to the west, New Caledonia to the southwest, New Zealand's Kermadec Islands to the southeast, Tonga to the east, the Samoas and France's Wallis and Futuna to the northeast, and Tuvalu to the north.Fiji is an archipelago of more than 330 islands, of which 110 are permanently inhabited, and more than 500 islets, amounting to a total land area of about 18,300 square kilometres (7,100 sq mi). The farthest island is Ono-i-Lau. The two major islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, account for 87% of the population of almost 860,000. The capital, Suva on Viti Levu, serves as Fiji's principal cruise port.[12] About three-quarters of Fijians live on Viti Levu's coasts, either in Suva or in smaller urban centres like Nadi (tourism)[12] or Lautoka (sugar cane industry). Viti Levu's interior is sparsely inhabited due to its terrain.[13]

Fiji has one of the most developed economies in the Pacific due to an abundance of forest, mineral, and fish resources. Today, the main sources of foreign exchange are its tourist industry and sugar exports.[3] The country's currency is the Fijian dollar. Fiji's local government, in the form of city and town councils, is supervised by the Ministry of Local Government and Urban Development.[14]


The majority of Fiji's islands were formed through volcanic activity starting around 150 million years ago. Today, some geothermal activity still occurs on the islands of Vanua Levu and Taveuni.[15] Fiji has been inhabited since the second millennium BC, and was settled first by Austronesians and later by Melanesians, with some Polynesian influences. Europeans visited Fiji from the 17th century,[16] and, after a brief period as an independent kingdom, the British established the Colony of Fiji in 1874. Fiji was a Crown colony until 1970, when it gained independence as a Commonwealth realm. A republic was declared in 1987, following a series of coups d'état.


In a coup in 2006, Commodore Frank Bainimarama seized power. When the High Court ruled in 2009 that the military leadership was unlawful, President Ratu Josefa Iloilo, whom the military had retained as the nominal Head of State, formally abrogated the Constitution and reappointed Bainimarama. Later in 2009, Iloilo was replaced as President by Ratu Epeli Nailatikau.[17] After years of delays, a democratic election was held on 17 September 2014. Bainimarama's FijiFirst party won with 59.2% of the vote, and the election was deemed credible by international observers

Fiji's participation is in line with its national energy priorities and green growth framework in trying to meet growing energy demand with cleaner, low-carbon and sustainable sources of energy sources.

IRENA is at the epicentre of international cooperation for greater renewable energy deployment and has enabled Fiji to cooperate across the globe on renewable energy development and deployment.

Mr Prakash thanked IRENA for its innovative programs and services that helped build capacity in all member countries, especially the Small Island Developing States through the SIDS Lighthouse program.

He also commended IRENA's research and publications, which reaffirmed the transformative potential of renewables in the world and the impact it could make not only in fostering economic development and job creation, but especially in achieving sustainable development and climate objectives.

PM To Open Rural Districts Two-Day Services

Monday, 12 June 2017 11:10
Published in latest news

A road show for the people in the rural districts of Tawake, Saqani, Vaturova and Koroalau in Cakaudrove from June 20 to 21 will be opened by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.

“Right now all the district reps in the mentioned areas are going around advising people on these dates,” Commissioner Northern Jovesa Vocea said.

“This road show was supposed to be held in April but was postponed because of the overseas commitments of our Honourable Prime Minister Mr Bainimarama.”

Mr Vocea yesterday was urging members of the public to turn up in numbers to the event at villages in Saqani.

He said transportation would be provided as it would be accommodated in the $50,000 budget for the road show.

“From the coastal villages to the interior ones such as Valovoni, Nadogo, Nacula and Nayarabale, transportation would be provided,” Mr Vocea said.

“Everything would be arranged and accommodated by Government.”

He said the road shows were important as it was a way to decentralise Government services to the people in the rural areas.

“But for these two days, we will be taking these services to them and services include, birth and marriage registration, registering people in Vola ni Kawa Bula  and so on,” Mr Vocea said.

“And other services offered by Government Departments and stakeholders will be provided for during the event.”

Wife Wants Closure On Salesh Chand’s Demise

“It has been one year already and I have not received a single phone call from the Police advising me on the progress of the investigation,” Ms Devi said yesterday.

Mr Chand’s  charred remains trapped in a burnt car were found near the Fiji Sugar Corporation grounds in Lautoka on the early morning of June 8.

“It’s me who has been calling them for over a year now and still there has been no progress,” Ms Devi said.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro yesterday said the file for the case was still open.

“The file is still open and the Police department is working on this case.”

Ms Devi said the answers she was receiving from the Police were becoming repetitive and she was concerned with the way the investigations were being handled.

“Every time we give a call to the Police officers, they tell us that the file is open and they are investigating,” Ms Devi said.

Ms Devi is the only one earning in her family to make ends meet.

“I have two sons who attend school. I now work at a second hand shop, six days a week to support my family,” she said.

“The past one year has been very challenging. My two sons are also getting affected in school as well after their father passed away last year.”

Mr Chand had been in Rakiraki for one week working at the Vinod Patel office there before he returned home when the murder took place.

Mr Chand told his wife he was going out not long after he arrived at their Lautoka home. He did not tell her where he was headed.

He failed to return home. The company car he drove away in was found on Wednesday morning (June 8) burnt out at the Fiji Sugar Corporation grounds in Lautoka. Police confirmed the charred remains of Mr Chand were in the car.

After initial investigations and identification by close relatives the Police classified it as a murder case.
