FIJI has what it takes to host international sporting events.

Speaking at the opening ceremony of the 2019 International Weightlifting Federation Junior World Championships in Suva last weekend, Minister for Youth and Sports Parveen Kumar said the Government was committed to hosting major sporting events.

He said it was a proud moment for Fiji to host the IWF event in Suva.

“We take sports seriously and the Fijian Government sees sports as a development tool. It bridges social divide and promotes Fiji as a brand globally,” Mr Kumar said.
