WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF THE OFFICE OF THE PRIME MINISTER OF THE REPUBLIC OF FIJI.
The Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) assists the Prime Minister in the role of Head of Government and Chairperson of Cabinet by providing administrative and logistical support.
The Cabinet Office of the OPM provides Cabinet and the Prime Minister with secretarial support to ensure timely decisions for the effective running of Government.
The OPM also implements a number of programmes, including the development of the mahogany industry, the issuance of small grants, and the coordination of donor funding for community development projects (particularly in rural areas and outer islands), and the administration of the Rotuma, Rabi and Kioa Island Councils.
The OPM also has authority over the Department of Immigration, which is responsible for managing the flow of people across Fiji’s borders. This includes passport issuance for Fijian citizens, the issuance of entry and departure permits, and the processing of applications for citizenship.
Through the ePassport system, the Department is in the process of introducing new technologies to improve internal operations and deliver more effective services to the public.
“By the time we gather at the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Action Summit in September, the majority of the world’s countries must come with realistic and concrete plans for three things: for their next round of more robust and aggressive NDCs; for halving emissions by 2030; and for reaching net-zero emissions by 2050. We are already revising our own commitments in accordance with those aspirations and the rest of the world must follow suit. Throughout this High-Level plenary, let us keep climate resilience and climate action at the heart of our discussions. And as we look at the UNSG’s Climate Action Summit, let us summon the courage and the will to face squarely the tremendous challenge that confronts us and to do the things we all know can and must be done.”
