Introductory remarks

Good morning to you all.

I am extremely pleased to be here today to officially launch the Reserve Bank of Fiji's 2018 Student Diary. Like Master Salacakau, some of my fellow colleagues that I brought along with me from the Reserve Bank, and my fellow officiant DSPS Bure, we all once walked these corridors and laughed and cried in your classrooms. And not only did we play and cheer in this very Hall, but we also spent many fitful hours here during internal and external examinations! From the outset I would like to thank the Reserve Bank Governor, Ariff Ali for his gracious suggestion to have this launch here at MBHS. This is in fact my first public engagement as Deputy Governor and it is fitting that I share this moment in my old school and amongst you all.
