Special Siitting For PM Modi

Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi will meet with his Fijian counterpart, Voreqe Bainimarama before addressing a special sitting of parliament next Wednesday November 19.

The meeting is part of a tight one-day schedule for the Indian leader who arrives in the country after a meeting of the G20 in Australia.

The Indian government has been a major donor in the return to parliamentary democracy in Fiji. It provided logistical and financial support for the Fijian Elections Office during the lead-up to the September 17 polls. It also provided training for Hansard staff as part of its support package for the new Parliament.

Speaker of the House, Dr Jiko Luveni confirmed these details yesterday. She also confirmed that Mr Modi will tour the parliamentary complex and officially open the new parliamentary library.
