The diplomatic ties between the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of Fiji will continue to scale to greater heights.

This has been highlighted through the courtesy call paid by the His Excellency Qian Bo, People’s Republic of China Ambassador to Fiji to the Minister for Defence, National Security and Foreign Affairs, Inia Seruiratu at the Minis­try of Foreign Affairs headquarters in Suva, on Wednes­day.

Ambassador Qian congratulated Minister Seruiratu for his appointment as the Minister for Foreign Affairs and stated that the People’s Republic of China was committed to deepen its strategic engagement and friendship with Fiji.

He said through strength­ened collaborations there was potential to boost op­portunities for trade and investment exchanges in areas of tourism, agricul­ture, fisheries, forestry, and cooperation in education, human resources, capacity building and skills train­ing, health, infrastructure developments.

Minister Seruiratu ex­pressed his gratitude to the People’s Republic of China for its support in leading the positive development opportunities in a wide range of so­cioeconomic sectors and particularly those that generate positive results for the welfare and wellbeing of the com­munities in Fiji.

He stated that Fiji was committed to broaden collabora­tions with the People’s Republic of China because it would promote initiatives for the benefit of both the countries.

It is envisaged that there will be an exchange of high lev­el visits along with opportunities for cultural and people to people cooperation. Fiji and China have enjoyed cordial relations since the establishment of diplomatic collabora­tions in 1975.
