The Fijian government remains open to growing relations through enhanced political and strategic agreements.
This was mentioned by the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Inia Seruiratu at the opening of the Familiarization Visit to Fiji by non‑resident Heads of Missions from Canberra and Wellington at the Grand Pacific Hotel.
He says with the theme, Nurturing Global Partnerships for Sustainable Development is reflective of the nature and intent of this Familiarization Visit.
Seruiratu added that the facts and figures showed that Fiji's trade is growing, exports are increasing, the Fijian government is creating more jobs, attracting historic levels of investment, Fiji's economic base is steadily expanding its diversity, tourism earnings have risen and the levels of foreign reserves remain strong and continues to deliver development across the country at a pace Fiji has never experienced before.
He encouraged the accredited Ambassadors and High Commissioners to Fiji to identify at least one area or sector during their visit that they can cooperate in that and it would be of mutual benefit to our countries.
He says Fiji also welcomes their partnership in areas of strengthening cooperation bilaterally in various sectors such as trade, investment, sports, tourism and multilateralism.
