Around 3000 girls will get support to stretch their tennis skills with a $12 million investment from the Morrison Government.
We are more than neighbours, we are more than partners. As Prime Minister Bainimarama and I have said on each of our discussions so far, we are family.
A stable and secure Pacific is important for the prosperity of Australia, as much as it is for Fiji and the other Pacific Island nations.

PRIME MINISTER BAINIMARAMA: Thank you members of the press, I am confident when I say that today’s bilateral was not only a clear success, it truly marks a new chapter in the Fiji-Australian relationship.
Well it’s wonderful to be back in Fiji. It’s particularly great to be here in Suva and it’s wonderful to be part of what is a new phase, a new era, a landmark phase of Australia’s relationship with Fiji.
Can I begin by saying how devastated I am by the despicable, tragic and violent killing of Aiia Maasarwe. Every woman in Australia, every person in Australia should be able to travel home safely.
But I’m more passionate frankly about how sport can play such a wonderful role in communities. Not just in Australia, but here in Fiji and across the Pacific
Prime Minister Bainimarama, it has been a wonderful start to our friendship over the past few months.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Prime Minister Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama met yesterday in Suva and reaffirmed the breadth and scope of the friendship between Australia and Fiji.
Well g’day everyone. I’m glad you could join us, it’s tremendous to be here in Vanuatu. Last year I announced our Government’s ‘step up’ programme, our Pacific ‘step up’ programme and when you step up, you have to show up.
