Modernizing Military Capabilities: Key Insights Revealed

The ongoing National Security and Defence Review (NSDR) has already provided invaluable insights to form the bedrock of Fiji’s future national security strategies.

In Parliament yesterday, Home Affairs Minister Pio Tikoduadua extended his gratitude to the review team, headed by James Sanday, for their thorough and dedicated work.

He stated that all future national security strategies would ensure that Fiji is prepared to face modern threats with robust and effective measures.

“This review emphasises the importance of modernising our military capabilities, improving our logistics, and enhancing our readiness to respond to various threats,” he said.

Mr. Tikoduadua highlighted that the Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) remains steadfast in its commitment to protect Fiji and contribute to global peacekeeping efforts.

He mentioned that this year’s focus is on internal restructuring to improve efficiency, establishing the Joint Logistics Command, and implementing the Automated Logistics Management Systems.

“These initiatives will streamline our operations, reduce costs, and enhance our overall capability.”

“Our naval division continues to safeguard our vast Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) and support maritime operations critical to our national security and economic interests.”

“The surveillance of Fiji’s EEZ and the execution of maritime search-and-rescue missions are vital to our sovereignty and economic wellbeing.”

“We are also focusing on the professional development of our military personnel, ensuring they have access to the latest training and technology.”

He emphasized that this commitment to excellence would enhance Fiji’s ability to protect its interests both at home and abroad.

“Our continued participation in UN missions demonstrates our dedication to global peace and security, and the NSDR will help us maintain and improve our contributions to these important international efforts.”
