The Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola, expressed his ministry’s appreciation to outgoing Chinese Ambassador to Fiji, Huang Yong, for his role in deepening relations between the two nations.

At a luncheon reception held in Suva yesterday to farewell the Chinese envoy, Ratu Inoke commended Mr Huang’s professionalism and diligence in deepening relations since his arrival in Fiji in 2011.

Ratu Inoke highlighted that the recent visit to Fiji by the Chinese President, Xi Jinping, demonstrated China’s commitment to working closely with the Fijian Government.

“Not only was it a first State visit to Fiji by a Chinese Head of State; your innovation in bringing together the other Pacific Islands heads of States and heads of governments was also a first for the Pacific,” Ratu Inoke said.

He added Mr Huang’s contribution to numerous beneficial bilateral arrangements aimed at improving the lives of ordinary Fijians.

This is through capacity building, cultural exchanges, academic studies, sports development and tourism did not go unnoticed.

“The honourary award conferred to you earlier by Fiji’s Head of State, His Excellency President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, underscores our deep appreciation for your distinguished services to Fiji,” Ratu Inoke said.

He thanked Mr Huang for his friendship and professionalism during his tenure as China’s envoy to Fiji and wished him well in his diplomatic career.
