Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama and his wife Mary Bainimarama will formally welcome and receive the Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia, David Hurley and his wife Linda Hurley this evening.

The last visit by a Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia was in 1993.

A statement on the Fijian Government Facebook page says this State visit reinforces Fiji and Australia’s commitment to regional solidarity and will unfold new opportunities for engagements in strategic cooperation in areas of climate and oceans actions, disaster resilience, economic recovery, defence and security, and socioeconomic development, amongst others.

The State visit will also feature programmes in the Northern Division, with an official opening of the Maramarua District School Kindergarten and a delegation led by President Ratu Wiliame Katonivere will host the Governor-General for an official visit to the friendly north.

Ratu Wiliame says Fiji is proud of this historic visit and looks forward to welcoming the Governor-General and his wife to Fiji.

He says this collaboration signifies the strong friendship and bilateral relations between our two nations, which have continued to strengthen over the years.

The President adds that the visit to Vanua Levu is an exciting one for the people of Vanua Levu as they will witness and be part of one of the first state visits to the Northern Division.
