Welcome to Suva – the Capital city of Fiji

Welcome to Suva City Online in the Fiji Islands. The Suva City Council is the municipal law-making body of the city of Suva, Fiji’s capital city.

This Suva City Council website provides information for both visitors and citizens. We hope you find the site useful, informative and fun. A vibrant city with strong community values, recognised for its quality lifestyle, dynamic investment opportunities and as a desirable place to live, work and visit.”

In this 21st Century our city will face many challenges, to some of these challenges we will have to adapt, to others we can respond. The measure of our success will be the extent to which we respond to the challenges we can overcome.

The second action taken by the Council was to begin work on this Strategic Plan. This plan is about choosing our destiny, about choosing a destiny delivered by accident, or choosing a destiny delivered by vision and purpose.

Whose vision were we to implement? This is where the principles of good governance first came to our assistance, if the people of Suva sought reform, then they would wish to participate in the process of reform. To this end the third action taken by the Council was to provide the opportunity for the community to participate directly in designing the vision.

My Suva Campaign

Suva City Council has initiated a campaign of civic pride and responsibility for the greater Suva community called appropriately called, ‘My Suva’. Inspired by the general population’s increased calls for stronger anti-liter and beautification measures, the My Suva campaign has been launched with many individual projects under the campaign’s umbrella to follow.

My Suva will seek to reach all Suva residents and visitors and to help them remember their responsibilities to keep Suva clean and to understand their personal role as a gatekeeper for current and future generations. We all must remember that Suva City is a place where we work, reside, visit and enjoy the natural beauty and treasures bestowed upon us and that we must always strive to leave a footprint behind that enhances and enlightens those who follow.
