China’s President Xi Jinping has publically committed to protect the global governance achievements contained within the Paris Agreement to curb the effects of climate change.

During the meeting, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama thanked President Xi for his strong defence of the multilateral consensus achieved in Paris at the COP 21.

Bainimarama held separate meetings with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and President Xi in Beijing to build support for Fiji’s presidential agenda at COP 23.

At both meetings, Prime Minister Bainimarama sought China’s assistance for Fiji’s COP 23 Presidency and stressed the urgency of maintaining the momentum for making decisive cuts in global carbon emissions.

Prior to the bilateral meetings, Bainimarama also signed several Memoranda of Understanding between Fiji and China to deepen economic cooperation between the two countries.

Prime Minister Bainimarama was the only Pacific leader at the forum, which was attended by representatives from more than 100 countries and organizations.

Bainimarama will depart Beijing and arrive in Bonn, Germany to address a plenary session on the final day of the Bonn Climate Change Conference and also attend a Negotiation Management Workshop.
