Indian Monthly Magazine Features PM Bainimarama And PM Modi

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama and India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi are featured on the front cover of this month’s issue of the India Empire magazine.

The New Delhi based magazine was first published in 2004. It focuses on Diaspora, Diplomacy, Business and Politics.

In an interview with the magazine, Fiji High Commissioner to India Yogesh Punja said Fiji’s achievements had been driven by its strategic location in the heart of the South Pacific and cost-competitive location for investors.

He said Fiji had become an export-driven economy spurred by high technology, knowledge-based and capital-intensive industries to the Pacific.

“The establishment of a modern and inclusive 2013 Fijian Constitution, along with an unprecedented programme of administrative reforms across Government; substantial and consistent public investment in infrastructure, public utilities, education, health and social inclusion; and a concerted effort to position Fiji as the hub of economic activity and regional engagement in the Pacific,” he said.

“Fiji has also emerged as a respected advocate on some of the greater challenges facing humanity, including climate change, sustainable development and the preservation of our oceans.”

Mr Punja stated that Fiji and India shared deep and enduring ties of history and culture and a common global challenge of peace and cooperation in the interlinked ocean regions.

“India expands its cooperation in defence and security, including assistance in defence training and capacity building, enabling environment for Fiji to expand its economic diplomacy through trade and investments, development assistance, cultural cooperation, closer collaboration in areas of information technology with the establishment of centre for excellence in information and technology in Fiji, scholarship opportunities, cultural exchanges, Agricultural, health, medical, education and many more.” he said.
