With India, being the world’s biggest democracy and with its increasing influence in global affairs, Fiji looks to India for leadership on a number of issues.
Minister for Trade and Tourism, Faiyaz Koya says Fiji is appreciative of the many forms of assistance the Government of India has provided over the years.
“Fiji also looks forward to strengthening our already close bilateral ties and exploring new avenues of cooperation. There are a number of areas that we believe offer opportunities for our nations to collaborate further on and this includes economic cooperation, energy, healthcare, defence and building resilience against natural disasters – to name a few.”
Koya was speaking at the Namaste Pacifika – Festival of India’s event in Kshatriya hall, Suva last night.
The festival aims to showcase all the major facets of Indian culture and will feature renowned Indian artistes of various art forms from all over India.
