Fiji is looking forward to strengthen its bilateral relations with Kazakhstan.

The Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola, when meeting with newly-appointed Kazhakhstan Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs, Askar Mussinov, in Suva this week had requested Kazhakhstan for scholarships on mining engineering and other potential areas.

With mining explorations underway in Fiji, Ratu Inoke discussed the employment opportunities mining industry would offer in the country.

He said mining engineering would be a big career opportunity for the youth of Fiji.

Ratu Inoke said mining engineering was new to Fiji and it would be best if aspiring mine engineers from Fiji received tertiary education in Kazhakstan.  Ratu Inoke had initially raised this request for scholarship when meeting with his Kazhakhstan counterpart Erlan Idrissov in Astana in 2013.

Ratu Inoke said Fiji valued its relations with other countries including Kazhakhstan.

Among other things, they also discussed were issues relating to the bilateral and multilateral relations between the two countries.   Mr Mussinov congratulated Ratu Inoke on his re-appointment as the Foreign Affairs Minister and a Member of Parliament.

Ratu Inoke was informed of Kazhakstan’s International Expo to be held in 2017.

Mr Mussinov said the Government of Fiji was invited to send a delegation to the ‘Future Energy’ Expo which will attract countries from all over the world to discuss alternatives to traditional fossil fuel energy.
