Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka has called on members of the Great Council of Chiefs to be “chiefs for all”..

Speaking at the GCC meeting this morning, Mr Rabuka said council was a beacon of leadership, guidance and unity.

The meeting at the Yatu Lau Lagoon Resort in Pacific Habour has Pacific delegates, foreign dignitaries, government Ministers and provincial representatives in attendance.

This is the second consecutive year that the GCC is meeting, and the first after it was reinstated in November 2023 by law after its disestablishment.

“Today we recall the foundation upon which we built the GCC, we remember our chiefs who valiantly fought to safeguards its position,” Mr Rabuka said.

“There will always be challenges to face, but our resolve, inspired by their courage, shall guide us forward.”

Mr Rabuka says the re-establishment of the GCC heralds a new era of governance, one that recalls its illustrious past achievements while embracing the challenges and opportunities of the present and the future.

First on the agenda today will be the appointment of the Chair and vice-chair of the GCC.

The meeting will officially begin at 3pm and end tomorrow.
