Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama outlined Fiji’s plans for the COP23 presidency at a meeting with the United Kingdom’s Minister of State for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Baroness Anelay of St Johns.

This is part of a global effort to build support for Fiji’s presidential agenda at the 23rd session of the Conference of the Parties.

He highlighted this during a meeting in London.

Mr Bainimarama laid out Fiji’s vision as president of COP23 and as co-host of the High-Level UN Conference on Oceans to be held in New York in June 2017.

During the bilateral talks, the Prime Minister and Baroness Anelay explored opportunities for closer economic co-operation between Fiji and the UK. This was particularly in relation to Fijian Made goods and Fijian sugar.

The Prime Minister also noted Fiji’s bid for a seat on the Human Rights Council for the 2018-2020 term.

He held the meeting in London prior to attending the 50th International Sugar Organisation Council Meeting.

Mr Bainimarama would then head to Brussels where he is scheduled to meet with the President of the European Council Donald Tusk.
