Speaking at the opening of the Albert Park Pavilion and Grounds, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama said that just like the revamped park, his government has done the same with the nation by restoring its glory.

We have not only restored it (Albert Park) to its former glory. We have made it better by bringing it into the modern age. With a redeveloped ground and new facilities that we can all enjoy now and is worthy of the generations to come.

As it happens, we have done the same with our nation. Reversed the years of decay and neglect and set ourselves on a new course – a quest for greatness.

As One nation, One people, One Fiji, we are finally putting the lost years behind us. And are fulfilling the promise of that magical day 46 years ago when in this very place, Independent Fiji came into being.

Prime Minister Bainimarama said  it was a wonderful time to be Fijian.

And nothing exemplifies that more than the scene this evening. The seat of our democracy and site of so many great occasions revived. And bathed in the golden glow of the setting sun disappearing behind the mountains that ring our beautiful harbour.
