Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Ministry of Trade, Cooperatives, Small and Medium Enterprises and Communications Manoa Kamikamica says the return of the Great Council of Chiefs means another key part of the rebuilding Fiji process.

Kamikamica says the reconvening of the GCC meeting on the chiefly island of Bau, is one of several promises that the three political parties that make up the people’s coalition government planned to deliver should they be elected to lead.

He says one of the satisfying parts of the job of a politician is keeping your promises adding the GCC was a core promise and to see it come to fruition was satisfying.

Kamikamica further says the hope is that the GCC will continue where it stopped but to ensure its relevance in the 21st century.

He adds it should be a source of wisdom, compassion and love for all people in Fiji and more particularly the i-Taukei.

Kamikamica also says the GCC could provide guidance on key issues such as the issue of majority of the i-Taukei population living below the poverty line.

He explained that, it is government’s job to address the poverty levels with the GCC providing guidance and support.

He adds some key areas where guidance will be required are NCDs, the review of social structures and addressing education gaps
