“Climate Change Act will make sure we deliver climate action and ambition in Fiji” – Minister of Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum’s Ministerial Statement

In an address to Fiji's Parliament on the 7th of August, 2019, the Attorney General and Minister of Economy, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, made specific mention of the Pacific Blue Shipping Partnership being developed with guidance and leadership by MCST and its partners:

"And Mr Speaker, Sir we are leading, with the Marshall Islands, the Pacific Blue Shipping Partnership that is working on a blended and innovative finance structure to support the decarbonisation of domestic marine transportation fleets and facilities in Fiji and across the region. This means replacing inter-island ships with more efficient hybrid ships, thereby reducing fuel costs and emissions."
