Fiji is a very beautiful country, says newly- appointed Indian High Commissioner to Fiji Vishvas Sapkal.

“This is the first time I have come to Fiji and the Pacific region.

“I arrived in Fiji on April 25 and on my way from Nadi to Suva, I have experienced Fiji’s nature,” he said.

Mr Sapkal was deputy chief of mission in the Embassy of India in Cairo before he was appointed the new High Commissioner to Fiji.

“People here are very friendly and very welcoming.

“They always have beautiful smiles on their faces.

“Fiji is a very beautiful country,” he said.

Mr Sapkal is originally from Maharashtra State in Sangli in India. He will be the India’s High Commissioner to Fiji for the next three years.

“Sugarcane fields in Fiji remind me of Sangli. There are also many sugarcane fields in India and Fiji and India has a historical relationship,” he said.

Mr Sapkal said he wanted to strengthen the relationship between Fiji and India in all fields.

“I am looking forward to enhancing bilateral co-operation between India and Fiji.

“Fiji and India has had excellent co-operation at all levels,” he said.

Mr Sapkal said his wife and two sons were also enjoying themselves in Fiji.
