Calls are being made for Fiji to fully engage with nations that share democratic values and are genuinely committed to supporting Fiji’s development agenda.
This was emphasised by Former Prime Minister and leader of the Fiji Labour Party Mahendra Chaudhry during the 112th Republic of China (Taiwan) national day celebrations at the Grand Pacific Hotel.
Chaudhry commended the people of Taiwan for being a leading economy with remarkable economic achievement despite facing diplomatic difficulty.
He says Taiwan as a democratic and sovereign nation has remained committed to democratic principles.
He further says Fiji’s agriculture and fishery sector have benefited from Taiwan’s leading technology industries.
Meanwhile, Republic of China(Taiwan) Representative Joseph Chow emphasized Taiwan's longstanding presence in Fiji, dating back to the establishment of a trade mission in 1971.
The Representative says the two nations’ collaborations have flourished over the years and has lead to their unwavering support to Fiji’s agriculture, aquaculture, education, medical and public health, solar power generation, capacity building, and training programs which has enhanced the partnership's depth.
