.@JoeBiden’s decision to welcome fully vaccinated international visitors paves the way to quarantine-free travel between Fiji and the USA from 1 December. Great news for Fijians on either side of the Pacific! 🇫🇯🛩🇺🇸

Your new @FijiAirways Aviation Academy –– a world-class facility where Fijians who aspire to take to the skies can earn their wings. Our pilots are already using this academy to maintain their aviation certifications. We're ready to welcome back tourism flights from 1 December!

What better way to celebrate #DRRDay than to have our very own Madam Director @SokoVasiti win the inaugural Women’s International Network on Disaster Risk Reduction Excellence Award. 👏🏿♀️ "Mainstreaming DRR is everyone’s responsibility and the time to take action is now!"

80% of adults in Fiji are fully-vaccinated a full three weeks ahead of schedule! I'm grateful to everyone who's rolled up their sleeves to help make Fiji safe. At 4pm on #FijiDay, I'll announce the easing of COVID restrictions at home and our plan to re-open Fiji to the world.

“Pacific Island nations are tired of reiterating their people’s suffering and applauding their resilience in the face of climate change.” It is simply abhorrent to turn a blind eye to what is happening in the Pacific. abc.net.au/radio/programs/pm…

"The consequences of inaction are unthinkable," says Fiji’s PM Frank Bainimarama, as Pacific island leaders urge industrialized countries to commit to plans for real action at #COP26 and not "a litany of good intentions". Read: buff.ly/3ah6Iw8 via @physorg_com @FijiPM

Fiji’s PM Frank Bainimarama has called on Pacific nations not to allow world leaders to “sneak in and out of [COP26 in] Glasgow without making a single serious commitment...Our actions will decide whether islands exist or are lost to the rising seas.” @smh smh.com.au/environment/clima…

Pacific people refuse to be the "canaries in the coal mine" of climate change –– helpless songbirds whose demise serves as a warning to others. With adequate access to climate finance, the young people of the Pacific can be the poster-children for development, not disasters.

Thank you, @FijiPM & Fiji Gov't for choosing scientific knowledge and a healthy ocean. For the ocean we want, we must better understand and act on the needs and priorities of ocean-dependent peoples and our future generations. @IocUnesco @UNOceanDecade
Fiji has banned deep sea mining in this Decade of #OceanScience because we've chosen discovery over destruction. We know more about the moon's surface than the deep seabed. Until we learn more, short-term profits can't win out over priceless ocean-based knowledge.

The PACIFIC OCEAN has protected and sustained us for centuries. It is what unites us. It is as important as our Land. Let’s do right by it. Vinaka vakalevu @FijiPM It is my hope that our pasifika neighbors will follow suit. #PacificOcean #OceanScience #Fiji
