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.

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.

The Hon. Charlot Salawi Tabimasmas MP, Prime Minister of Vanuatu: Welcome Prime Minister, Senator Anne Ruston and other Ministers, senior officials, members of the media. Let me again take the opportunity honourable Prime Minister, to welcome you and the members of your delegation.
