Prime Min­is­ter Voreqe Bain­i­marama has ex­tended the well wishes of the Fi­jian peo­ple to Repub­lic of Korea as the na­tion marked its 71st anniversary in­de­pen­dence. In a con­grat­u­la­tory note to Pres­i­dent Park Geun-hye, PM Bain­i­marama said Fiji reaf­firmed its de­sire to work closely with the Gov­ern­ment of the Repub­lic of Korea to ad­dress the great is­sues like cli­mate change, re­gional peace, security and so­cial and eco­nomic devel­op­ment. In high­light­ing the cur­rent devel­op­ment in var­i­ous fields, the head of Gov­ern­ment said: “With the di­rect air link be­tween our na­tions, we con­tinue to strengthen our peo­ple-to-peo­ple ties, as well as our for­mal diplo­matic re­la­tion­ship”. Prime Min­is­ter Bain­i­marama said he was es­pe­cially keen to se­cure in­creased Korean in­vest­ment in Fiji and an ex­pan­sion of trade be­tween the two coun­tries.

To this end, he said Fiji looked for­ward to work­ing with the Gov­ern­ment of Korea to strengthen eco­nomic links in the months and years ahead. “I also wish to again place on record my Gov­ern­ment’s grat­i­tude for the Repub­lic of Korea’s gen­er­ous as­sis­tance to Fiji in the af­ter­math of Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Win­ston in Fe­bru­ary,” Prime Min­is­ter Bain­i­marama said.

Repub­lic of Korea, which cel­e­brated its in­de­pen­dence on Au­gust 15, was one of the first coun­tries to es­tab­lish diplo­matic re­la­tions with Fiji 46 years ago. Prime Min­is­ter Bain­i­marama said Fiji deeply valued its friend­ship, trust and re­spect with the Repub­lic of Korea.

In a con­grat­u­la­tory note to Pres­i­dent Park Geun-hye, PM Bain­i­marama said Fiji reaf­firmed its de­sire to work closely with the Gov­ern­ment of the Repub­lic of Korea to ad­dress the great is­sues like cli­mate change, re­gional peace, security and so­cial and eco­nomic devel­op­ment.
