During the visit, Ambassador Yauvoli thanked Prime Minister Sogavare for having confidence in him to lead the organisation for the last four years.

Mr Yauvoli informed the Prime Minister that despite the challenges faced it did not prevent him from his vision to resurrect the organisation.

“Thank you Prime Minister for having the confidence in me and for appointing me. I am satisfied that I have served the MSG secretariat diligently and we have worked to rebuild MSGs credibility in the region,” he said.

Ambassador Yauvoli also presented the MSG Secretariat Progress Report to the Prime Minister, which provided a summary of the undertakings and achievements the MSG has accomplished during his tenure.

Mr Yauvoli also briefed the Prime Minister on MSGs financial status and the reforms he took under his leadership.

Prime Minister Sogavare in response has sincerely thanked Mr Yauvoli for his service to MSG over the last four years.

“You have done well and I must applaud you for your service to MSG. The reforms you have undertaken are reflected in the achievements the MSG is seeing now,” he said.

The Prime Minister also wished Ambassador Yauvoli all the best in his new role as the Fiji’s Ambassador to USA & Canada.

“I had no doubt in appointing you then and I am happy that your experience with MSG will prepare you for your next challenge,” he said.

The Prime Minister also expressed his desire to see a new Director General that will continue the worthy legacy left by Mr Yauvoli.
