Leadership Fiji has expressed its deepest condolences on the passing of the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip.

Leadership Fiji CEO, Sharyne Fong said they remembered the Duke of Edinburgh as the founder of the Commonwealth Study Conferences (CSC) in 1956 which has continued to bring together emerging leaders from all sectors of society across the commonwealth.

CSC Australia established the Emerging Pacific Leaders Dialogue (EPLD) in 2006.

Ms Fong attended the inaugural EPLD 2006.

“EPLD certainly had a positive impact and provided me with a greater appreciation of our Pacific. I was also able to make new friends in new countries many of whom I am still connected with today,” she said.
