Lusiana Tuimaisala has learnt Chinese, covered major international events, worked on a financial magazine and completed classes at a prestigious university.

Now the Fiji Sun journalist is preparing to head home to a new role at the country’s big­gest newspaper.

Ms Tuimaisala graduated this week in Bei­jing from a one-year advanced journalism pro­gramme in China.

It was based at the China Asia Pacific Press Centre and hosted by the China Public Diplo­macy Association.

Fiji Sun Publisher/CEO Peter Lomas said: “An outstanding programme. With lasting benefits in many areas.

“We thank the Chinese Embassy in Suva es­pecially for making it possible. And for mak­ing sure Lusi was so well looked after and had such rewarding opportunities.”

Ms Tuimaisala completed courses at Renmin University – one of the most prestigious in Chi­na -and Beijing International Chinese College, where she studied Chinese.

She did an internship at Chinese Investment magazine, a major construction and invest­ment publication.

Throughout the year she covered business, trade and finance events.

Lusiana Tuimaisala’s family were in Beijing for her graduation from the year-long course ... and to see China themselves

These included the China International Im­port Expo, the China International Fair for Investment Expo, the China-South Asia Expo, and the Boao Forum for Asia.

She also covered such Fijian focused events as participation in China’s big Belt and Road trade and development initiative and charter flights to Fiji. Even some sport.

Ms Tuimaisala is from Namosi. She will re­turn to Suva and the Fiji Sun early next year as Deputy Managing Editor Business.
