India Is Popular For  Fijians Seeking Medical Treatment: Envoy

India’s High Commissioner to Fiji says India is one of the most sought-after places now for Fijians seeking overseas medical treatment.

Vishvas Sapkal made the remark at the ceremony in Suva to mark India’s 70 years of independence.

Mr Sapkal was speaking in relation to affordable and better medical facilities.

“Right now there is a team of 10 doctors in Fiji operating surgery on small children,” he said.

He said India also invested in education, offering scholarships every year and other cultural programmes in place.

Other initiative that the Indian Government is looking towards is in the agriculture sector.

“We see ourselves as a development partner of Fiji; we do a lot of development assistance especially in the agriculture sector which is a prime sector for all of us.

“The Indian Government has just provided 2 Tractors to the Ministry of Agriculture and they are looking forward to more co-operations especially in the coconut sector as Fiji grows a lot of it.”
