I will visit Fiji from 19 to 21 February on the first anniversary of Tropical Cyclone Winston, which hit Fiji on 20 February 2016 and resulted in the tragic death of 44 Fijians.
During my visit, I will attend a formal commemoration service in Suva.
I will visit the Centre for Pacific Crops and Trees (CePaCT) which, through the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR), is growing seedlings to help communities recover from Tropical Cyclone Winston.
Today I announce the Australian Government will continue our partnership with the International Planned Parenthood Federation to deliver the Sexual and Reproductive Health Program in Crisis and Post Crisis Settings (SPRINT) in the Indo-Pacific region.
