The Suva Declaration on climate change has the full support of South Korea when Fiji takes it to the Conference of Parties 21 (COP21) in Paris in November.

This assurance was given by the South Korea’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, Yun Byung-se, at the Grand Pacific Hotel (GPH) yesterday.

“I had been briefed on the Suva Declaration and South Korea will support it in Paris,” he said.

“On climate change, Fiji can benefit from the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI).”

The GGGI promotes a new model of economic growth known as “green growth” that simultaneously seeks economic performance and environmental sustainability.

It works to produce three major outcomes:

Mr Yun said: “I’m visiting Fiji to reciprocate Ratu Inoke’s visit to South Korea this year.”

Mr Yun said he met with Government ministers and was happy with the positive responses he received.

While meeting the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola, they discussed areas of potential bilateral co-operation and explored business opportunities.

Mr Yun said the two countries must capitalise on their good working relations and co-operation that existed.

He said South Korea would like to contribute to Fiji’s agriculture sector, education, health etc.

Mr Yun said they would also strengthen their military ties.

 

Three Major Outcomes

  • Adoption and implementation of green growth plans;
  • Provision of research for policymakers;
  • And private sector engagement in the implementation of the national green growth plans
