Prime Minister Voreqe Bainiamarama today signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Thailand’s Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister General Thanasak Patimapragorn.
Fiji can expect to expand its development – with the MOU setting the framework for technical cooperation across various sectors including the exchange of experts, the provision of training programs and future collaboration between the two countries on social and economic development.
Bainimarama says the agreement clearly demonstrates the commitment of Fiji and Thailand to take their relationship to another level.
We have made a great deal of progress so far in developing our bilateral ties and I am grateful to the Deputy Prime Minister for building on the success of my own visit to Thailand in May. The MOU signed today establishes a solid platform for both countries to extend our cooperation into other areas of mutual interest.
He also expressed appreciation for Thailand’s support.
On behalf the Fijian Government and the Fijian people, I want to express our deep appreciation for the generous support that the Thai Government is providing to Fiji and we look forward to strengthening our relationship in the months and years ahead.
Patimapragorn is in Fiji for the first time attending the Pacific Islands Development Forum which begins tomorrow.
