The visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping to Fiji beginning today is of strategic importance and will spur bilateral relations, Chinese Ambassador to Fiji Huang Yong said.

From Friday to Sunday, the Chinese President pays a State visit to Fiji, where he is also to meet at Denarau, Nadi, with leaders of Pacific island countries that have diplomatic ties with China.

The visit is the first by a Chinese Head of State to the South Pacific region, and the meeting in Fiji with leaders of all nations in the region that have diplomatic ties with China is unprecedented, Huang said.

Fiji is an important country in the South Pacific and the first in the region to forge diplomatic ties with Beijing, said the ambassador.

China-Fiji relations have progressed steadily and demonstrated increasingly positive signs of growth in recent years, he said.

“The two countries have deepened practical co-operation in politics, economy and trade, people-to-people exchanges, ushering in a new historic opportunity of growth in their bilateral ties,” Mr Huang said.

On trade and investment, the two sides have witnessed continuous growth, Huang noted.

China has assisted in the construction of hospitals, housing, hydro-power stations, agricultural projects and road renovation, playing a concrete role in improving the livelihood of the Fijian people.

On people-to-people exchanges, the two sides have achieved fruitful results, said the ambassador.
