FIJI at a national, regional and even at international level, has done a lot of work for empowerment of women.

This was the sentiments of the Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation Mereseini Vuniwaqa during the opening of the Minister’s Women’s Forum held at the Novotel Convention Center in Lami today.

Mrs Vuniwaqa said Government speaks about these things at all levels.

“I am sure that all of you also talk about your good work wherever you are invited at whatever opportunity you have,” Mrs Vuniwaqa said.

She said this forum was an avenue of strengthening partnerships between women and the Ministry.

“This is where I would like to hear of the challenges and the issues that you face in your work and also what the women that you work with face,” she said.
