At a meeting in Suva yesterday afternoon, the Attorney-General and Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum met with the Japanese Parliamentary Vice- Minister for Foreign Affairs, Iwao Horii, to discuss the Nadi River flood protection project, among other topics.

In their meeting, the Vice-Minister commend­ed Fiji for its successful COP23 leadership, ex­pressing Japan’s continued support in the global fight against climate change, and encouraged closer Fijian- Japanese cooperation in other areas of shared strategic interest.

He also welcomed Fiji Airways’ recently-announced direct flight to Tokyo, a gateway to new opportunities for both countries in trade, tourism, and investment.

“Japan’s experience in addressing extreme weather events, paired with its cutting-edge technology and in­novative thinking, can greatly assist us in moving for­ward the Nadi River Flood Protection Project,” said the A-G.

“We look forward to further building upon the al­ready-strong relationship between the Japanese and Fijian peoples.”
