Fiji and Germany will continue to work together in the lead up to the climate change negotiations in Bonn, Germany in November.
The German State Secretary for Environment Jochen Flasbarth is in Fiji and met with the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama yesterday for a series of meetings regarding COP23.
Bainimarama says Germany’s support to Fiji has been great and this was further enhanced today.
“The German government has said that it want this to be a Fijian COP and has offered to pay for the branding of the event, the Fijian performers and the cultural items and artefacts that we will take to Bonn to infuse COP23 with the ‘Bula Spirit.’”
Flasbarth says Germany will continue to support Fiji as it prepares to chair the climate change talks.
“The Germany Prime Minister will always stand by those affected by climate change as a partner and we are really delighted to be cooperating with Fiji on the upcoming COP23. We can already see now that Fiji will be a very strong leader for the world.”
Over 20,000 people will converge at Bonn for the COP23 meet.
