Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has sent well wishes to the government and people of New Zealand as they commemorate 176 years since the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi.

In a letter to his New Zealand counterpart, John Key, Mr Bainimarama said Fiji valued its relations with New Zealand and expressed pleasure at the recent developments in bilateral and multilateral relations between the two countries.

“Dear Prime Minister, as you commemorate the 176th Anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi on 6 February, I convey to you the warm greetings and best wishes of the Government and the people of Fiji.  Fiji values its ties with New Zealand and is pleased with the warming relationship that has evolved in the last fifteen months through various re-engagement opportunities at bilateral, regional and international levels.”

In his letter, the Prime Minister said that Fiji and New Zealand could work together in addressing common challenges facing the region – in particular, the issue of climate change.

“I am confident that the cordial links that now exist between our two countries will continue to strengthen in order to provide the enabling space for collaboration on the common challenges of peace, security, climate change and the protection of our oceans and seas”  Mr Bainimarama said.

“We wish you and all the people of New Zealand a joyous celebration in the true spirit of Waitangi Day.”
