Zhang: More Economic Help In Future

The new Chinese Ambassador to Fiji, Zhang Ping, says there is potential for greater economic co-operation between China and Fiji.

Mr Zhang earlier presented his credentials to the President, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau last Thursday.

He said China was a firm supporter of Fiji and was always the best it could to assist Fiji economically.

“We think that economic co-operation is the cornerstone for our bilateral relationship and I presume that the economic co-operation will become greater in the coming years,” Mr Zhang said.

He said they would continue implementing China aided projects that were in progress because it was important that it was completed as scheduled.

“On the other hand we can try to explore some other new areas for further cooperation but that is up to the discussion between our two sides but we will welcome our friends in Fiji to propose and make suggestions we can have a more in- depth discussion on how we can enhance our co-operation.”

Posting to Fiji

Mr Zhang said he was pleased to be posted to serve as the Chinese Ambassador to Fiji. He said Fiji and China relation was important following President Xi’s visit last year.

“We are very excited about the future developments of our bilateral relations so I think my role here is to promote friendship and also promote exchanges and co-operation between our two countries,” Mr Zhang said.

40th year Anniversary

Apart from Chinese cultural performances to commemorate the 40 years of diplomatic relations between Fiji and China, Mr Zhang said there would also be high level visits and also exchange of personnel between the two countries.

He said Fiji had a friendly environment and the people had been warm with him.
