Together we will continue to build a Fiji that thrives economically and stands as a shining example of unity in diversity.

This was highlighted by the Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka in a message to commemorate the 53rd anniversary of Fiji's independence.

The Prime Minister says this day is a significant milestone that fills our hearts with pride and gratitude, marking a journey of resilience, unity and the unwavering spirit of the people.

This year's Fiji Day theme is "Rebuilding Fiji Together," which not only reflects the aspirations but also the indomitable spirit that has guided everyone through the years.

Rabuka says for a brighter future we should stand shoulder to shoulder with all Fijians which reminds us of the power of unity and shared responsibility.

The Prime Minister also expanded on the theme, intertwining it with a vision that transcends our national borders —the "Pacific Zone of Peace."

He says representing Fiji at the United Nations General Assembly in New York, the concept of the "Pacific Zone of Peace" was introduced as our Blue Pacific's invaluable contribution to global order.

The "Pacific Zone of Peace" is rooted in the fundamental values of mutual respect's sovereignty, territorial integrity, and political independence.

It calls for the nurturing and enhancement of international cooperation, inviting nations to collaborate on areas of common interest.

He adds that as we celebrate independence today, we are reminded that peace is not only the absence of conflict but also the presence of cooperation and understanding in our multicultural society.
