Work Expected Soon On Delhi Chancery

Work is expected to start soon on the new Fijian chancery in New Delhi.

It will sit on prime real estate in Chanakyapuri, a key diplomatic enclave. Fiji’s High Commissioner to India, Yogesh Karan said the deal was the culmination of strong bilateral relations that stretched back 135 years.

“The land is a vacant one at the moment and Fiji needs to put up its own infrastructure for the chancery.

There aren’t any renovation costs since there is no building on the vacant land apart from solid concrete boundary walls,” he said.

According to the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola, the land was worth $107 million and the reciprocal deal was sealed with the visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in November.

Fiji has also provided land to India for its chancery in Suva to be built on a piece of land near the Fiji Museum, next to the Thurston Gardens in Suva.
