China, the world’s most populace nation in the world, has thanked Fiji for the care and support given towards our Chinese community.

The gesture was offered to the Fijian Government last week by Qiu Yuanping, the Minister of the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council of China.

She visited Fiji and held talks with the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola.

Ms Yuanping stated that her visit here was to sustain and promote relationships with Fiji and also to visit the local Chinese community.

Ms Yuanping said her ministry was responsible for Chinese immigrants living overseas and encouraging their positive integration into their settled communities.

She expressed her appreciation towards the Fijian Government’s support towards the local Chinese community, especially for opportunities provided for business and educational advancement.

She said China valued Fiji’s relationship and hoped to further strengthened diplomatic and developmental co-operation.

She was also supportive of Fiji’s role in the region towards climate change and pledged China’s support towards such initiatives.

Ms Yuanping advised Ratu Inoke of China’s Maritime Silk Road — now a part of the One Belt, One Road initiative and how Fiji could benefit from China’s strengthened accessibility to global markets.

Ratu Inoke reiterated Fiji’s appreciation for China’s support in recent years.

He advised Ms Yuanping on his recent participation at the 70th session of the United Nations General Assembly and of Fiji’s stance towards the recently adopted Sustainable Development Goals.

He advised Ms  Yuanping that Fiji would co-host the Triennial Oceans and Seas Conference in 2017 together with Sweden.
