The Fiji-China relationship is one that has been built on great respect and genuine kindness that remains constant to this day.
These were the words of Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama at the pre-celebration yesterday of China’s 70th Anniversary.
Bainimarama says recently the bond between Fiji and China was more than evident.
“The Fiji-China relationship is one that has been built on great respect and genuine kindness that remains constant to this day. As I was in our Pacific neighbor, Tuvalu for the Pacific Island Forum just a few weeks ago, that kinship was on full display as I shared a bowl of grog with our Ambassador Qian Bo, as we talked about the outcomes of this vital conference where I continued to press larger, developed economies to take urgent and dramatic action to combat climate, a crisis that in Fiji, in China and around the world is the fight for our lives.”
Bainimarama commending the Chinese government for its work towards the cause that Fiji and the Pacific prioritize above all else, and for its assistance in adapting the economy here in Fiji to be more resilient to the ravages of a changing climate.
The Prime Minister concluding that as they gathered to mark 70 years since the founding of the People’s Republic of China, he knows the Chinese are committed to ensuring the next 70 are not stained by inaction, but filled with inspired hope for the future of the planet.
