Fiji’s High Commissioner to Australia, His Excellency Mr Luke Daunivalu, presented his credentials to the Governor-General of Australia, Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd) on the 30th of August 2018.

In conveying the greetings and well wishes of the President of the Republic of Fiji, High Commissioner Daunivalu also informed the Governor General that it was an honour for him to represent the Government and people of Fiji in Australia and looked forward to working closely with the Australian Government.

With a focus on strengthening political, economic and social ties between Fiji and Australia, a key part of the new High Commissioner’s work will be engaging with the Australian private sector representatives, investors, academia, Civil Society Organisations and the 100,000 strong Fijian diaspora community in Australia.

High Commissioner Daunivalu brings with him to the role more than 20 years of experience working in the national and international arena. As Chief Negotiator for Fiji’s COP23 Presidency, he continues to take charge of the climate advocacy work under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. Fiji’s Prime Minister handed over the COP23 Presidency to Poland in December 2018 when COP24 begins in the city of Katowice.

Mr. Daunivalu’s appointment as Fiji’s High Commissioner is for the term of 3 years. He takes over from High Commissioner Yogesh Punja, who is now based in New Delhi as Fiji’s High Commissioner to India.

      Hello Owen, appreciate your feedback. No, this isn’t a paid subject as I only share topics that I’m interested in and passionate about as a hobby. Yes, I built the whole site myself and customised it too with all the promotions that go with it. I have a lot of experience in the tech field, especially in marketing, so all those prior learnings and skills have all come in handy for this personal project that I love doing. Thanks again for the thoughts, Miriam.

    With having so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d genuinely
    appreciate it.

      Hi Cialis, that’s a good question. No, I never run into trouble with plagorism or copyright violation because 99% of my blogs, vlogs, podcasts, videos and photos are all my own; whether I produced them myself or bought them legally. If they aren’t my own (like this article from the Fiji High Commission website), I will make sure that it is well noted that the contents aren’t mine and always give credit to the real author.

      Well, the truth is that once content is out there on the World Wide Web, it is considered public property so anyone has access to download it or share amongst their network, etc… There are no special techniques to help protect against your content being stolen except putting up a ‘Disclaimer’ on your site that’s easy to understand and leading by example by stating that a certain product isn’t your own production by giving credit to the true owner.

      I hope this helps. Please email me on if you have anymore questions. Here is my Disclaimer for your perusal:
