The value of this piece of state land is $1.2m.
This land is being exchanged with the land in Delhi as the Indian government has given a piece of land to Fiji in Delhi valued at $100 million.
Sapkal says they want the people of both countries to continue benefiting from the close bond.
“And for that both the governments have signed an MOU to give the land plots for building their officers, their chanceries at the respective capital sites. Such MOU was signed in the past. And I am really happy that we are also providing that befitting land of the plot to the government of Fiji for building their chancery, building their high commission in Delhi.”
Both governments are completing their legal procedures before the plots will be handed over.
