Frank Bainimarama said : “In the worst-affected areas, there wasn’t a tree left standing or a building left undestroyed. In total, that disaster claimed the lives of 44 of our people, levelled tens of thousands of homes and hundreds of schools, affecting over 500,000 Fijians” External link

Frank Bainimarama said : “Monday night, I returned from Madrid, Spain where I was representing Fiji at the 25th round of the UN climate change negotiations, COP25. Our mission in Madrid was to secure greater global commitments ahead of Paris Agreement’s implementation in 2020. While the science tells us the window of opportunity to save ourselves is fast-closing, the largest emitters have yet to summon the courage to act decisively on this issue. But there was one glimmer of hope at this COP. After many intense rounds of negotiations, Fiji helped secure recognition of the oceans role in managing the climate, a critical first step to engraining ocean preservation into the larger climate action campaign” External link

Frank Bainimarama said ( about Suva Fiji ) : "the answer is very simple, at least to those who know and understand Fiji's history. Fiji has had a colonial history which created many anomalies and inequalities, the legacy of which resonates today. Consequently and of the making of the politicians, our post-colonial period has been punctuated with political instability. On each occasion that a new government is voted into power, the old elite which benefited financially from the previous established government has been able to successfully destabilize the government and to replace it with its own supporters and representatives. This was only possible because those institutions of the State which were supposed to protect democracy and democratic values, instead colluded with the elite, to destabilize and replace the new government. In order to ensure that democracy has a real chance of survival in Fiji's future, serious, and principled reforms must be implemented to build roads, institutions and values. Together with infrastructure, the hearts and minds of our people must adopt and cherish true democracy" External link

They may see the teams from larger countries with greater resources as Goliath's," "But read that story again and again and you will find the real lesson of that story is giants are never as powerful as they appear - one good toss can drop them in their tracks.

Frank Bainimarama said : “No region of the world stood more united in purpose than the Pacific here at the UNGA. Our message is clear: we are suffering, our people are dying, and only decisive climate action will save us. But I’m gravely disappointed that in the face of a climate emergency the major emitters have failed to commit themselves to the actions necessary to save our planet. But the passion of my Pacific brothers and sisters here in New York, from heads of government to schoolchildren to A-list actors, is building a critical mass of momentous change the world will not be able to ignore,” External link

Our mission in Madrid was to secure greater global commitments ahead of Paris Agreement’s implementation in 2020. While the science tells us the window of opportunity to save ourselves is fast-closing, the largest emitters have yet to summon the courage to act decisively on this issue. But there was one glimmer of hope at this COP. After many intense rounds of negotiations, Fiji helped secure recognition of the oceans role in managing the climate, a critical first step to engraining ocean preservation into the larger climate action campaign” External link

Frank Bainimarama said ( about Suva Fiji ) : "the answer is very simple, at least to those who know and understand Fiji's history. Fiji has had a colonial history which created many anomalies and inequalities, the legacy of which resonates today. Consequently and of the making of the politicians, our post-colonial period has been punctuated with political instability. On each occasion that a new government is voted into power, the old elite which benefited financially from the previous established government has been able to successfully destabilize the government and to replace it with its own supporters and representatives. This was only possible because those institutions of the State which were supposed to protect democracy and democratic values, instead colluded with the elite, to destabilize and replace the new government. In order to ensure that democracy has a real chance of survival in Fiji's future, serious, and principled reforms must be implemented to build roads, institutions and values. Together with infrastructure, the hearts and minds of our people must adopt and cherish true democracy" External link
