There is good news for those affected by TC Yasa and Ana as the Chinese government has donated $1 million in humanitarian aid to Fiji in support of the rebuilding and recovery works.

According to a government statement, it is highly anticipated that 60% of the grant could be given to the Ministry of Education, 20% to the Ministry of Agriculture, and 20% to the Ministry of Fisheries since these three sectors were most affected by the cyclones.

The cheque was presented to Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama by the Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to Fiji, Qian Bo.

Bainimarama says this assistance affirms the strengthened collaboration between Fiji and China and it is a testament to China’s commitment to advance the levels of engagements with Fiji.

Bo says the assistance provided is in appreciation of the Fijian government’s commitment to rebuild the lives of Fijian communities who have been affected by TC Yasa and Ana.

Bo says China is ready to constantly enhance mutual trust, continue to firmly support Fiji on issues concerning respective core interests and strengthen the synergy of development strategies to jointly facilitate cooperation under the Belt and Road Initiative.

He says these include initiatives to expand people-to-people and cultural exchanges including tourism, reinforce communication and coordination on issues such as climate change under multilateral mechanisms, and make joint efforts to safeguard free trade and multilateralism.
