The Ro­tu­man com­mu­nity liv­ing in the United King­dom and parts of Europe hosted Pres­i­dent Ma­jor-Gen­eral (ret’d) Jioji Konrote and the First Lady, to a re­cep­tion in Lon­don yes­ter­day. The re­cep­tion was an op­por­tu­nity for Rotumans liv­ing in Europe to per­son­ally con­grat­u­late Pres­i­dent Konrote since he took up the post. It was also an op­por­tu­nity for them to show sup­port for Pres­i­dent Konrote in his QHZ UROH DQG WR UHDIåUP WKHLU FRPPLW­ment to sup­port Fiji’s so­cio-eco­nomic devel­op­ment.

Pres­i­dent Konrote ex­pressed his ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the Ro­tu­man com­mu­nity DQG EULHae\ GLVFXVVHG ZLWK WKHP WKH de­vel­op­ments tak­ing place back home. He high­lighted the 2013 Con­sti­tu­tion and its rel­e­vance in cre­at­ing equal op­por­tu­ni­ties for ev­ery Fi­jian. He pointed to the Con­sti­tu­tion as a work­ing doc­u­ment that will cre­ate one iden­tity for all Fi­jians – re­gard­less of race, gen­der or age.

He also spoke on the re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion ef­forts car­ried out back home since Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Win­ston and thanked the com­mu­nity for their sup­port in this process. Pres­i­dent Konrote reached out to them to work closely with the Gov­ern­ment to con­tinue this re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion ef­fort for those di­rectly af­fected by Cy­clone Win­ston. The re­cep­tion was held at the Fi­jian High Com­mis­sion in Lon­don.
