Fiji has expanded its international Police co-operation capabili­ties thanks to a memoran­dum of agreement signed yesterday.

Georgia’s Vice Prime Minis­ter and Minister for Internal Affairs Giorgi Gakharia and the Minister for National Security and Defence Ratu Inoke Kubuabola signed the documents in Georgia.

Ratu Inoke is there for a ministerial bilateral visit to strengthen Police Co-opera­tion between the two coun­tries.

Ratu Inoke highlighted that Georgia in terms of the in­tegrity of its national secu­rity system is ranked num­ber five in the world behind Japan, Singapore, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.

“Georgia has a population of 3.4 million and in 2018 their estimated tourist arriv­al is 7.6 million and it is in­creasing every year,” he said.

“They must be doing something right in terms of national security.”

The MOU signifies the intention between the two countries to enhance co-operation in sharing experience as well as best practice in crime prevention and combating crime, educa­tion and training and in ad­ministrative capacity build­ing as well.

Road safety, criminal in­telligence, crowd man­agement, security during sportive events and mass concentration and new police technologies and tools are additional areas of mu­tual interest that the two countries have agreed to work on.
