Asian Development Bank President Takehiko Nakao and Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama met today to discuss ways ADB can expand and strengthen its partnership with Fiji.
Nakao also held discussions with Attorney-General and Minister for Economy, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum and Governor of the Reserve Bank of Fiji, Ariff Ali.
During his visit, Nakao visited facilities in Denarau and Natadola which will be the sites of ADB’s 52nd Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors in May.
Fiji will be the first Pacific developing member country to host ADB’s Annual Meeting.
Nakao says he is impressed with the beautiful scenery and high-quality facilities selected for the Annual Meeting.
The Annual Meeting is an excellent opportunity to highlight the strength of the Fijian economy and progress across the wider Pacific region.
