Our new envoy to NZ says he looks forward to growing relations

Fijian High Commissioner to New Zealand Filimone Waqabaca presented his credentials to New Zealand’s Governor-General Sir Jerry Mateparae on Thursday.

When presenting his credentials at the Government House in Wellington, he said Fiji and New Zealand had a long-standing relationship that had endured the test of recent times.

He said the two countries, now re-engaging at various levels, was a positive indication of the mutual desire and commitment to strengthen this friendship and enhance bilateral co-operation.

Mr Waqabaca said it was an honour to represent Fiji in New Zealand and he looked forward to contributing to the growing relationship between the two countries.

“I believe that in the process there will be more opportunities for further collaboration on bilateral issues as well as on the global challenges of peace and security, climate change and sustainable development,” he said.

Mr Waqabaca was accompanied to the ceremony by his wife Caroline.

Also in attendance was the staff of the High Commission and officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
