MY FELLOW FIJIANS AND FRIENDS OF FIJI IN THE USA.
I welcome the opportunity to pen a few words on this website by the MOB USA fraternity, the organizer of the Fiji Day-USA 2017 celebration, and to wish them well in their preparation of what is proving to be an inclusive and exciting family day to celebrate Fiji’s 47th Independence Anniversary here in the USA.
A glimpse of the programme confirms that there will be rugby, soccer, volleyball, netball and golf for all sporting enthusiasts; players and spectators! There will also be featured cultural events, traditional dances, mouth-watering island delicacies and handicraft stalls. It is an event not to be missed and I would encourage everyone reading this message to block off the 6-8 October and make arrangement to be in Hayward California for the 2017 Fiji Day Celebrations.
I would also like to add that the Fiji Government will be making available at this event, Government services that are needed by Fijians living in the USA. These will include Immigration officers for renewal of passports, dual citizenship and other consular needs; Election Office officials for voter registration; Ministry of I-taukei officials for VKB registrations; and Investment Fiji for advise on investment/savings opportunities in Fiji.
I look forward to seeing you and your family in Hayward on 6-8 October and to welcome our chief guest at this event, Fiji’s Prime Minister, Mr Josaia V. Bainimarama.
Mr. Solo Mara
