Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs, Sitiveni Rabuka has reaffirmed Fiji’s support for the One-China Policy, given the significance to Fiji and China’s diplomatic relations over the past 48 years.

This was after the Vice Chairman of China International Development Cooperation Agency (CIDCA) Tang Wenhong paid a courtesy visit to the Prime Minister at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs office.

Rabuka thanked the People’s Republic of China for supporting Fiji over the years, particularly towards socio-economic development.

Rabuka also acknowledged the signing of the two Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which will further strengthen the cooperation between the two nations.

The MOU on strengthening development cooperation and promoting the implementation of the global development initiative and a new agreement on economic and technical cooperation was signed between Wenhong and Assistant Minister for the Office of Prime Minister Sakiusa Tubuna.

The meeting also highlighted partnership opportunities in areas such as agriculture, infrastructure, tourism, trade, and investment with prospects for Fiji’s economic diversification.

Wenhong thanked Rabuka for the opportunity to meet in person and discuss the key areas of cooperation between the two nations.

Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to Fiji, Zhou Jian says that upon the inauguration of the new Fiji government and China’s new state leadership, it is of great significance for China to designate a high-level delegation to synergize the development strategies for future cooperation.

He says China International Development Cooperation Agency’s visit to Fiji fully demonstrates China’s firm commitment to developing China-Fiji comprehensive strategic partnership and the profound friendship between the two peoples.

The Ambassador says China is ready to provide new opportunities for cooperation and share its development dividends with more countries.
