Papua New Guinea Prime Minister, James Marape says Fijians will now be able to obtain visa on arrival while travelling to PNG.
Marape highlighted this adding it would certainly build stronger cooperation between the two nations in the face of the current geo-political environment.
This is after Fiji was offered a 99-year land lease in the Central Business District in Port Moresby for the construction of its chancery in Papua New Guinea.
The Fiji Government will also reciprocate through making land available in Suva for the construction of the PNG chancery.
The establishment of the Fiji-PNG Missions will not only strengthen traditional ties and people-to-people links but also socio-economic development between the two countries.
Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka reaffirmed Fiji’s commitment in working together with PNG to further improve and strengthen bilateral relations.
Rabuka says both countries are united in their resolve to build a more prosperous and resilient Pacific region.
The leaders also discussed prospects for more collaboration on higher education, security cooperation, agriculture, climate change, trade and investment and promoting regional solidarity.
Prime Minister Marape welcomed Prime Minister Rabuka for his first official visit to PNG which demonstrated the significance of their diplomatic relations.
Rabuka is expected to meet with the Fijian community in PNG today.
