, Shaanxi Tongchuan (China) — Licantén (Chile) *Suva (Fiji) — Timbuktu (Mali) *Jaisalmer (India)— Easter Island Ethnic Fijians (Fijian people) and Indo-Fijians are both intended to benefit from this provision. The multiracial capital, Suva, has excellent educational services, but more rural areas, populated mostly by ethnic Fijians (Fijian people), are often poorly served. Indo-Fijians predominate in commerce and the professions, while the public service and the Armed Forces (Military of Fiji) are overwhelmingly ethnic Fijian (Fijian people). This constitutional provision is meant to redress the ''reasons'' for these imbalances by authorizing appropriate legislation. There is a caveat, however: ''"A program established under this section must not, directly or indirectly, deprive any person not entitled to its benefits of: (a) any position or seniority in the service of the State: (b) any place in an educational or training institution; (c) a scholarship or other financial support; or (d) a right to carry on any business or profession or to enjoy any other opportunity, amenity or service; to which that person has already become, and would otherwise remain, entitled."'' In other words, the giving of special help to disadvantaged groups ''must not'' discriminate against a member of another group. The airline was established and started operations in 1951.

radio intelligence

. 22–23), MacArthur refused to believe the radio intelligence forecasts of the ''MO'' operation and did not acknowledge that the Japanese were attempting to invade Port Moresby until his reconnaisance aircraft actually sighted Japanese ships approaching the Louisiades and New Guinea in the first week of May. The mutineers passed through the Fiji and Cook Islands, but feared that they would be found there. Continuing their quest for a safe haven, on 15 January 1790 they rediscovered Pitcairn Island, which had been misplaced on the Royal Navy's charts. After the decision was made to settle on Pitcairn, livestock and other provisions were removed from the ''Bounty''. To prevent the ship's detection, and anyone's possible escape, the ship was burned on 23 January 1790 in what is now called Bounty Bay. Some of her remains, such as her ballast stones, are still partially visible in its waters. Her rudder is displayed in the Fiji Museum in Suva. An anchor of the ''Bounty'' was recovered in 1957 by Luis Marden in Bounty Bay. - WikiPedia:Suva Commons:Category:Suva

Suva

'''Suva''' is the capital (Capital (political)) and the second most populated municipality of Fiji, after Nasinu. It is on the southeast coast of the island of Viti Levu, in the Rewa Province, Central Division (Central Division, Fiji). In 1877, it was decided to make Suva the capital of Fiji when the geography of former main European settlement at Levuka on the island of Ovalau proved too restrictive. The administration of the colony was moved from Levuka to Suva in 1882.

Suva is Fiji's political and administrative capital. It is the largest and the most cosmopolitan city in the South Pacific (Oceania) and has become an important regional centre; students from the Pacific region and a growing expatriate community make up a significant portion of the city's population. Under authority of local government act Suva is governed and administratively looked after by Suva City Council.

At the 2007 census, the city of Suva had a population (Demographics of Fiji) of 85,691. Suva, along with the bordering cities of Lami (Lami, Fiji), Nasinu, and Nausori have a total urban population of around 330,000, over a third of the nation's population. This urban complex is known also as the Suva–Nausori corridor (not including Lami).
