Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says today is not only about celebrating the birth of our nation – of an independent Fiji.

He says it’s about celebrating the privilege of being Fijian because that’s what we all are now - Fijians irrespective of our background, who we know, or where we come from.

While speaking to FNU students during their Fiji Day celebrations, Bainimarama says that is a Fiji to be proud of.

He says every year, the 10th of October holds a special place on our calendar.

Bainimarama says we gather with family and neighbours, we celebrate with friends, and we put on our best Fiji blue to show our pride in our country.

He says Fiji Day is about overcoming adversity and tapping into our true potential.

The Prime Minister says it is about coming together as we chart a course for our country that will bring us unity, bring us harmony, and bring us hope.
