The success of the Fiji International presented by Fiji Airways on the world stage is in no small part due to the ongoing dedication shown by the Fijian community who are involved with event on so many levels. From business suppliers and corporate partners, to the many local volunteers including Fiji National University students; the local support is a crucial part of the event.
