Fiji has received a grant of $6.47 million from Japan which will support upgrade works at the Nadi International Airport.

The project which is funded under the ADBโ€™s Japan Fund for Prosperous and Resilient Asia and the Pacific, aims to support Fiji's tourism industry recovery by strengthening the COVID-19 responsiveness at Nadi Airport.

Minister for Economy, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says such a partnership would support major upgrades at the Nadi International Airport which would enable our tourism industry to continue on a sustainable path towards recovery.

The grant agreement was signed by Sayed-Khaiyum and ADB's Regional Director for the Pacific Subregional Office in Fiji, Aaron Batten while Fiji Airways CEO Andre Viljoen and Fiji Airports CEO Isei Tudreu signed the project agreement with Batten.
