The United Kingdom comprises of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The UK offers the full range of climates from the cold winters of Scotland to the warmer climates of the South coast of England. All elements of the UK have their own personal history, and they are all within easy traveling distance, by plane, car, water or train. You will always find enchanting landscapes, infused in history and always a welcome sign for foreigners who are moving to the country for the first time. The United Kingdom is the greatest in numbers as far as the migrant capacity is concerned. This has also had an impact on permanent residency figures with stricter guidelines and rules coming in to force over the last couple of years. Tests and Interviews and the general awareness have become a part of the routine to test what a migrant can bring and contribute to this country. The statistics in 2009 demonstrate that there has been a steady influx of visitors to the UK, up by 5% the previous year.

Moving to United Kingdom
Fijis new Constitution was signed into law by President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau Friday, which now hastens the process towards national elections in September 2014, as promised by Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama. On its role in the Pacific region, Minister Swire acknowledged the need for the United Kingdom to continue its presence. My visit here comes after a successful trip to Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea in April. This visit came after the extraordinarily successful visit to Tuvalu and Solomon Islands of the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cambridge. The links between ourselves and this part of the world are historic, strong and enduring. We like to think that providing finance to climate change, and what is now known as the greatest challenge to this part of the world, shows our continuing commitment. I think its important that the UK is here to stay. What is sometimes forgotten is that we are the third largest donor in the Pacific in terms of the European Development fund which provides huge amount of money in the region, said Minister Swire. Minister Swire was in Majuro to head the UK delegation at the Post-Forum dialogue meeting with Pacific Leaders. The United Kingdom was one of the first countries that expressed its support for the Majuro Declaration on Climate Change Leadership. When people talk rather academically about the principles of climate change, they should come here to see the realities on the ground. Having travelled to four Pacific Island Countries in recent months, Minister Swire said seeing the situation on ground brings the point close to home, especially when the highest point in Majuro was a bridge, three metres above sea-level. The UK and the European Union although we are far away, we stand shoulder to shoulder with the islands in terms of financial support and providing technical know-how. The UK is one of the largest providers of climate financing, pledging just under 3.9 billion over the 2011-2016 period to help developing countries, including the low lying islands in the Pacific address the impacts of climate change.
