“We’re beginning work on Fiji’s entry into the Australian Pacific Labour Scheme as I’ve mentioned that has already occurred and we look forward to that playing out of the course of next year and beyond. We also welcome Fiji into the Pacific Medicine Testing Program that’s a joint initiative of the therapeutic goods administration and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and Fiji will join nine other Pacific Island countries that are participating in that program.”

Easing restrictions on Australian visa’s for Fijians was also part of the talks, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama applauding the opening up of trade on one of Fiji’s favourite drinks.
