Fiji's strategic location an asset: Ratu Epeli

Read an article taken from the Fiji Times online,, today, 6 May 2008.

It talks about a statement made by our Foreign Affairs Minister that Fiji enjoys a strategic location in the Pacific because of our location.

We need a good discussion of our competitive advantages and how we can put them to good use. We will also need to have a review of our past mistakes and learn from them.

If someone is interested in writing a book about our country's experience (economic and social, in particular) since 1970, can he or she e-mail me on I would be interested to do a joint detailed analyses on the topic.

In the meantime, read the article from the Fiji Times online, below.

"Fiji's strategic location an asset: Ratu Epeli, Tuesday, May 06, 2008, Update: 11:40AM

Fijis strategic location in the Pacific region is a great asset, says interim Foreign Affairs Minister Ratu Epeli Nailatikau.

He said the proper utilisation of air links to the destinations could also help establish trade links with more developed global economies.

At the same time the increased traffic through our airports in terms of passengers and cargo brings with it another dimension which is an increased movements and corresponding risks, he said.

While speaking at the third meeting of Asia/Pacific Regional Aeronautical Telecommunication Network Implementation Coordination Group (ATNICG 3), Ratu Epeli said Fiji was given the opportunity to host the event due to the ever evolving advancement of its aviation industry."
