SUVA, Fiji Islands (January 18, 1999 - Daily Post/Pasifik Nius/Niuswire)--- It's official. Fiji will be the first country in the world to enter the third millennium, the Daily Post reports.
This was confirmed by the New York-based Millennium World Time Zone organization.
Fiji is placed as first country ahead of New Zealand and Tonga (and Kiribati).
Adrian Rodenburg, executive committee chairman of the Udu Point Meridian Trust, said he was happy with the decision.
He said he expected Fiji to be listed as the country with the last sunset of the present millennium, instead of Samoa.
"Common sense will prevail," he said. "It is just so obvious that Fiji has the only genuine claim to being first into every new day and the new millennium."
Mr. Rodenburg added that Fiji was first regardless of daylight saving time, although daylight saving had many people confused.
The World Time organization has an Internet website http://www.worldtimezone.com,
which places Fiji as the first country in the world to welcome the new millennium.
In the garden island of Taveuni preparations are already under way, with the construction of roads and renovation of the hospital.
Also, representatives from the Millennium Television Network (MTN) have met Fiji government officials and the Fiji Visitors Bureau to make arrangements to include Fiji in a network broadcast to greet the new millennium.
MTN executive producer Catriona Brown said MTN would present a live, 24-hour broadcast as the millennium was greeted by each country in the 24 different time zones.
Businesses and manufacturers are gearing up for the millennium celebrations, taking into consideration Fiji's expectation of increased tourism late this year and into 2000.
